When food is wasted, not only do we lose the nutrition of that food, we lose the water, gasoline, and fertilizer used to grow, process, and distribute that food. Food is wasted at every step of the food system: left-behind food rots on farm fields, irregularly-shaped produce is discarded by distributors and retailers, and consumers needlessly throw away food after the misleading “best by” dates printed on its labels.
These educational posters were developed for the Food Better Harvard campaign. Food Better is a partnership of Harvard University Dining Services and its' Food Literacy Project, the Harvard Office for Sustainability and the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic.
