Educating Kids About Food Waste

How one frozen food group is focusing on this behavior

The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) is getting the word out about ways to decrease food waste with a new program for kids returning to school.

NFRA announced a partnership with Young Minds Inspired, a school curriculum firm, to offer lesson plans that teach students and their families how to reduce food waste. The “No Taste for Food Waste” program—which has been introduced to 65,000 educators nationwide—includes lessons for middle-school and high-school students in family and consumer science, environmental science, and health courses.

The average person throws away 300 pounds of food yearly, at a cost per family of $2,200 and a nationwide cost of $218 billion, according to the association.
