What’s in Store for Food Waste Prevention Week: April 1-7

Did you know that one third of all food is wasted, and locally, food waste makes up the largest category of waste at Knott Landfill? Help us bring these numbers down by joining us in our #LoveFoodNotWaste campaign!

This week, the Rethink Waste Project is joining forces with local partners to raise awareness during Food Waste Prevention Week. Stay connected by following our social media channels and blog for food saving tips, tricks, challenges, online resources, and more.

We’re teaming up with the folks at Boundless Farmstead, Central Oregon Locavore, Jackson’s Corner, Cook by Color, High Desert Food and Farm Alliance, and others to give you various perspectives and insights on tackling food waste.

You can also participate in the campaign by posting your own #LoveFoodNotWaste tips, ideas, or questions! Be sure to tag us @envirocenterbend or email them to amelia@envirocenter.org.
