Our Top Stories of 2016

Dec 27th, 2016 | By Sustainable America

Every year, we like to take a look at our most popular blog posts from the past 12 months. This year’s list highlights a few projects that deserves special mention, in case you missed them:

• In April, we launched the Food Rescue Locator in collaboration with EndFoodWaste.org and the Food Rescue Alliance. This free online tool allows anyone with excess food (individuals, offices, events, restaurants, you name it!) to find a nearby group they can donate to. If you’d like to support food rescue in your area in 2017, plug in your ZIP code to connect with groups nearby.

• We also launched the I Value Food: Too Good to Waste Challenge, a online program that helps individuals and families waste less food at home. Working to reduce personal food waste is another great goal for 2017. All you need to get started is a computer or smartphone and a 1-quart container.

Here are some of the most popular blog posts of the year.
