    Food Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    trying to use what is already in the fridge, to be judicious when ordering from Imperfect Produce.  Having just traveled for a family wedding weekend, I saw displays of leftovers, brunches with plastic utensils...we can do better!
