Be A Zero #NoFoodWaste

Be A Zero and learn how to practice zero food waste this month!

Did you know that we waste up to 40% of our food? Almost half! Yet one in seven people in the US is food insecure. Since we are the largest slice of the food waste pie—making up over 40%—reducing waste at home is key, but over 60% of waste happens before food even gets to our homes. 

Sign up and each week we’ll fill you in on the larger picture of food waste along the supply chain.

  4. The winner will receive a $25 gift card from The Brooklyn Kitchen. Winner will receive gift via mail.
