Each year, 40% of the food produced in America is thrown away. That’s as if you just tossed two of your five grocery bags right in the trash, instead of putting them away in the kitchen

This waste costs the average American family an average of $1,800 each year. Absurd, right?

So, we’re asking for your help! Our Food Waste experts at Kroger have some clever tips for buying, storing and preparing the ten most commonly wasted foods.
