Prevent Food Waste

Thursday, June 13, 2019

It takes a lot of water, energy and transportation to get food to our plates, yet we trash 40 percent of the food in the U.S. Food is the single largest component of trash in Minnesota. In Dakota County, household trash usually ends up in a landfill where the food rots and produces methane, a greenhouse gas more than 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. Learn how to prevent food waste and save money. Presented in collaboration with Dakota County Environmental Resources Department and Heritage Library.
