4 Ways to Reduce Food Waste
Get It to Go
Although restaurants can legally donate qualifying excess food to organizations like City Harvest and Feeding America, you own the food you order and it isn’t going anywhere. Since many restaurants serve enough for two on each plate, don’t be shy about ordering a second appetizer instead of an entrée, sharing an entrée with your dining partner, or taking half of your food home to make a second meal. The one exception to this rule is if you’re at a business meal…doggie bags and business don’t mix.
