Create Meals, Not Waste With Hennepin County’s Stop Food Waste Challenge

About 40 percent of food is wasted somewhere along the supply chain, and you may be surprised to learn that much of that food waste happens at home. With Hennepin County's Stop Food Waste Challenge, residents can learn skills and habits that will help eliminate food waste.

Learning skills like creating a meal plan, buying just what you need at the grocery store, cooking creatively, and properly storing food can have a big impact on reducing the amount of food in your home that goes to waste.

How The Challenge Works

The challenge goes from August 1 through August 31. To get started, participants can create a profile, join or start a team, then browse the categories and actions. Select up to five one-time actions and five daily actions to make progress on during the four-week challenge. It’s recommended to start with tracking food waste for one week as it’s the best way to learn what’s going to waste in your household and identify ways to prevent it.

During the challenge, participants will get email updates with resources and tips for taking action, access to workshops and events hosted by Stop Food Waste Challenge partners, and opportunities to connect with others.

Join Hennepin County’s online Stop Food Waste Challenge at hennepinfoodwaste.ecochallenge.org to learn easy, practical skills that will help you stop wasting food, put more money in your pocket, and create a healthier environment.
