Take The Stop Food Waste Challenge

Stop throwing away the food you buy and take Hennepin County’s Stop Food Waste Challenge.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Americans waste nearly 40 percent of the US food supply. To help address this issue, Hennepin County is asking its residents to take the Stop Food Waste Challenge to reduce the amount of waste generated in households and ultimately address climate change.

The challenge has more than 40 actions to choose from in five categories: planning, shopping, cooking, storage, and community. Participants check off the actions they already take and select five one-time actions and five daily actions to help reduce food waste.

Sign up by Sept 14 and track your progress online.
