Attention Penny Forward Supporters
Financial Sense¢: How to Save $1,500 Annually by Reducing Food Waste
We are excited to invite you to this month’s edition of the Financial Sense¢ program, where we will be delving into a topic that affects us all: food waste. According to a December 2022 Fortune article, it was revealed that Americans squander approximately one-third of the food they purchase. Shockingly, this equates to the average family discarding a staggering $1,500 worth of unused food annually.
In an effort to make a positive impact on both our wallets and the environment, this month’s Financial Sense¢ program will focus on practical strategies to avoid food waste. We believe that together, we can make a significant change by implementing some straightforward yet effective techniques.
Thank you to all of those that have already registered for our Financial Sense¢ series. If you are registered on Zoom. You will get the information emailed to you again the day of the event about 90min before the start.
What to expect
During our gathering, we will explore various insightful methods to tackle this issue head-on:
Strategic Meal Planning: Learn how to plan your meals effectively, ensuring that you buy only what you need and use everything you purchase.
Transforming Leftovers: Discover the art of turning yesterday’s meal into an exciting new culinary creation. Waste not, want not!
Freezing for the Future: Understand the proper way to freeze leftovers and excess ingredients to enjoy them at a later time, reducing the likelihood of spoilage.
Smart Food Storage: Get tips on using the right food storage containers to extend the freshness of your ingredients, allowing you to enjoy them for a longer period.
We encourage you to come prepared to share your own tried-and-true methods for preventing food waste and injecting creativity into your meals. By exchanging ideas and insights, we can all contribute to a more sustainable future while keeping our plates enticingly diverse.
