Have you ever thought about how much food actually gets wasted? Here’s some “food” for thought:


  • Almost 1.4 billion tons of food is wasted every year globally, and America discards more food than any other country.

  • That amounts to every single person wasting 1 pound of food every single day.

  • Food waste happens at every stage of food production and distribution, starting from farmers, producers and to retailers, and eventually to our homes.

  • Reducing food waste would help to end world hunger.

  • Reducing food waste would lower greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Reducing food waste will save us all a lot of money as well (about $1,800 per household).

Pretty shocking, isn’t it? Seeing these staggering numbers and the dire consequences of food waste can also feel quite overwhelming.

Is there anything we can do as individuals to lower these numbers and become a part of a solution for the global food waste problem?

Yes!

The key to reducing your household food waste is planning. Seems quite easy, right?

Step 1. Plan what you cook.
Step 2. Only buy what you need.
Step 3. Leave nothing behind.

Even though it does look easy, it is most probably not going to fit into your busy lifestyle. We all have daily errands to run, stressful work to survive, or some out-of-the-blue problems to take care of. Taking care of world hunger, reducing environmental footprint, and saving the economy on top of that doesn’t fit in anyone’s schedule.

But what if there was an AI-powered solution for responsible meal-planning and grocery shopping promoting sustainability and environmental protection?

What if you could both meal plan and shop for groceries in a matter of minutes?

What if you could easily track the ingredients you will use, and the amounts you will be left with?

What if you could get instant meal-prep ideas for utilizing those leftover ingredients?
