There are many things we all can do to stop wasted food and hunger and no action is too small. Here's some of my favorite ways:
You might be shocked at how important food storage is in preventing wasted food. Check out my favorite resource SaveTheFood.com for helpful tips on food storage.
I'll be the first to tell you - petitions work! Whether it's petitioning a local supermarket to donate their extra food or petitioning a large company to change their wasteful policies, petitions do have an impact. Find out more about my experience here or start your own petition here for the U.S., here for Canada, or here for Australia.

One great way to open eyes and get people involved is to feed them would-be wasted food. Check out the first Feeding the 5000 in the U.S. The Feeding the 5000 Oakland, which I managed, was so much fun. You can also check out the Feeding the 5000 Toolkit from the organization that's held them all over the world, Feedback. If a Feeding the 5000 is too much for you at this point, you can always try a Disco Soupe. Let them eat (would-be) waste!
Preventing wasted food in the kitchen can be pretty tasty. Check out my favorite resource SaveTheFood.com for helpful tips on cooking to save (not waste) food.
