We recently read that 1.4 million bananas are wasted everyday. Some of these are tossed because they’re overly spotted but a ton of them are wasted simply because they never get chosen at the grocery store. People grab a bunch, tear off what they want and leave the others. It’s rare that someone comes along and grabs the singles. So next time you’re at the store, grab some singles. And if you get an overripe banana, don’t let it become one of the 1.4 million wasted each day. Instead peel it, freeze it and use it in a smoothie or banana bread.

According to research, Americans waste 20 percent of vegetables and 15 percent of fruits inside and outside the home, more than past generations. Storing produce wisely saves money, reduces waste and allows more to be provided to the hungry.
Happy National Potato Chip Day! What’s your favorite flavor?
Have you heard about @simplygoodjars yet? It’s a local salad subscription company. They’re locally sourced by our friends (and Charity of the Month) at @commonmkt and support local organizations like @philabundance.
We are excited to announce @commonmkt has been selected as our March Charity of the Month. The Common Market is a non-profit regional food distributor working to improve food security, farm viability, and community and ecological health. They connect community members in the area with good food from over 200 producers in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
Are you conscious of the amount of food waste in your life? What are you doing to reduce it?
What are you snacking on while you work today? Great American Popcorn Works and @steaz are getting us through the day...
It’s National Nutrition Month and this year’s theme is “Go Further With Food,” a discussion on the importance of reducing food loss and waste. Shopping local, especially from Farmers Markets, is an affordable way to add healthy foods to your diet while conserving energy. Plus local foods usually taste better because they are naturally ripened. What are your favorite spots to shop local?
