TUESDAY PM: Food Waste 101
Food rescue starts at home! To do that, you have to understand the basics. How can you prevent food waste, what can you still eat and when, and if you can’t eat it, what are some alternatives to throwing it away? Throughout the week we’ll help you come up with creative ways to use the food you have. Our handy guidelines will prepare you to get cooking. Kick off the week by taking the Fridge Food Check – Stop Food Waste! Share your experience with us on Facebook or via email and we’ll enter you to win a gift card or gift from one of our sponsors.
WEDNESDAY: Lunch & Learn – Route-Based Food Rescue
Mix up a food rescued lunch with Emily, hear from a route volunteer about our unique food rescue model, and learn how Table to Table delivers 2.5 million pounds of food to our neighbors for just 15 cents a pound! Maybe by the end you’ll want to adopt your very own local food rescue route! We have many to choose from and they all play a critical part in addressing hunger in our community.
THURSDAY: Rescue Your Fridge Food
Got milk? Got old milk?! How about some soft apples or limp celery in your refrigerator? Check your email on Thursday and learn ways to clear out your refrigerator without throwing food away! Just like leftovers, many of those less-than-entirely fresh foods can be utilized in tasty and nutritious meals for yourself and your family.
FRIDAY: Cooking with our Community Partners
Ever wonder what happens to those thousands of pounds of food we rescue each week? Who better to share how to use rescued food than the chefs who do it every day to feed hundreds of our neighbors. Tune in on Friday when we’ll be joined by local chefs in the kitchens of the Salvation Army and Shelter House as they prepare nutritious meals for their guests using food rescued by Table To Table that same day.
All Week Long
Wildwoods Farms, Local Harvest, and Trader Joe’s
Don’t miss your chance to win a July CSA share from Wildwoods Farm, a garden starter kit from Local Harvest CSA or a bundle of goodies ($150 Value) from Trader Joe’s!
Recipe book holders will receive free bonus recipes! Local professional chefs aren’t the only ones that can cook and bake, as our very own Table to Table staff and volunteers share their favorite old family recipes and tips for home-cooked meals.
Best of all, throughout the week you can “Ask Emily” as our resident expert offers creative and tasty ways to prepare meals at home using leftovers, food found on your shelves and rescued from your refrigerator. Trust me, you will be glad you “asked Emily!”
