The Food Smart Program

Food Smart is a free education program that helps you reduce food waste at home, save money and help the environment.

Households receive a FREE Food Smart kit with resources like bag clips and food huggers to help them reduce food waste and receive email prompts and tips to help them on their way.

Food Smart involves:

  1. completing an online survey
  2. measuring your food waste over two days and sending the EPA the results
  3. following the six steps in the action cards and using the items in the free kit
  4. measuring your food waste again to see if there were any changes and sending the results again
