As you prepare piles of food for family and friends this week, keep in mind how much you’re actually going to eat. Each Thanksgiving, Americans waste more than a third of the turkey meat they purchase and prepare.
That adds up to $282 million wasted, contributing to over 5 million pounds in total holiday food waste. Celebrate wisely!
