Declare Your Independence from Food Waste

Happy 4th of July, y’all. On this day, I wanted to drop a quick reminder: Please do your best not to waste food while enjoying those oh-so-American activities.

If you’re hosting a backyard cookout, photo by raysto via creative commonsthat means planning how many guests you’re having, serving reasonable portions and saving leftovers. If you have an abundance at the end of the day, send people home with doggie bags.

At a ballgame? Don’t waste so much food it brings flocks of seagulls.

If you’re at the beach, don’t drop your sandwich in the sand!

And since I can’t stop thinking about the ridiculous gluttony fest happening today on Coney Island, here’s a classic post on it. Incredibly and somewhat predictably, I still plan to enjoy some hot dogs this year. As always, I’ll do my best not to lose a wiener into the grill.
