Love Food

Table to Table and the City of Iowa City together have created the “Love Food, Fight Waste” program to empower and educate community members to reduce food waste in their daily lives. This program is free to participate in and will feature a new topic each month. 

Why are we talking about food waste? 

When food is wasted, it wastes all the resources that went into growing, manufacturing, distributing, and transporting that food, too. That’s a whole lot of energy, water, and transportation miles wasted just for that food to end up uneaten. On a local level, landfilled food waste produces a strong greenhouse gas called methane, which contributes to climate change. One of the best things each of us can do to take climate action is reduce food waste in our daily lives.
