Food Waste

The Frozen Food Foundation is elevating frozen’s role in reducing food waste through an original research project.

40 percent of all food produced in America is thrown away.  The average American family throws out an estimated 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy, adding up to anywhere from $1,250-$2,275 per year for a family of four.  All told, both homes and businesses combine for nearly $162 billion worth of food waste each year in the U.S.

Through this new research initiative, the Foundation is seeking demonstrate the role of frozen food as a solution to combatting food waste, hunger and ensuring overall food security.
