Food waste is a serious problem. Each year, the average American family throws away as much as $2,200 worth of uneaten food, and 40% of all food in the U.S. ends up in landfills. Now’s the time to show your students how they can help reduce the economic and environmental impact of food waste, and how frozen and refrigerated foods can be part of the solution. In this middle/HS environmental science and FCS unit, students also learn the rules for the safe handling, preparation, and storage of frozen and refrigerated foods, and create a public awareness campaign to combat food waste in their community.

Visit PROGRAM SITE for additional resources, curriculum alignment, and an infographic with eye-popping statistics which can be used as a handout or poster.
