云南11选5:Food Loss and Waste

云南快乐十分前三组 In the United States, over one-third of all available food goes uneaten through loss or waste. This waste adversely impacts food security and the environment. When food is tossed aside, so too are opportunities for healthier communities, economic growth, and environmental prosperity.

USDA is uniquely positioned to address the problem of food loss and waste through its programs, policies and collaborations with federal, state, tribal and local governments, faith-based institutions, farmers, industry, and consumers.

In October 2018, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the signing of a joint agency formal agreement (PDF, 579 KB) under the Winning on Reducing Food Waste initiative. This is a collaborative effort to reduce food loss and waste through combined and agency-specific action. Individually and collectively, these agencies contribute to the initiative, encourage long-term reductions and work toward the goal of reducing food loss and waste in the United States. These actions include research, community investments, education and outreach, voluntary programs, public-private partnerships, tool development, technical assistance, event participation, and policy discussion.

U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions

The staggering amount of wasted food in the United States has far-reaching impacts on food security, resource conservation and climate change. To help galvanize national efforts to reduce food loss and waste, USDA and EPA announced the United States’ first-ever food loss and waste reduction goal in September 2015, calling for a 50-percent reduction by 2030.

Government alone cannot reach this goal. It will require effort and action from the entire food system. The 2030 Champions are stepping up to do their part to help the nation reach this critical goal.

U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions are businesses and organizations that have made a public commitment to reduce food loss and waste in their own operations in the United States by 50 percent by the year 2030. Since 2016, 23 corporations have been named as U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions. These champions include Ahold Delhaize, Aramark, Blue Apron, Bon Appétit Management Company, Campbell Soup Company, Conagra Foods, Farmstead, General Mills, Hilton, Kellogg Company, Kroger, Marley Spoon, MGM Resorts International, Mom’s Organic Market, PepsiCo, Sodexo, Sprouts Farmers Market, Unilever, Walmart, Wegmans Food Markets, Weis Markets, Whitsons Culinary Group and YUM! Brands.


We encourage more businesses and organizations to become U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions and reduce food loss and waste in their operations. To join the U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions, organizations may complete and submit the 2030 Champions form (PDF, 264 KB), in which they commit to reduce food loss and waste in their own operations and periodically report their progress on their website.
