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:

Store Your Food Right

Petition

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, petition 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.

Gleaning

There are billions upon billions of pounds of good fruits and vegetables going to waste on farms.  Get out there and help get that delicious produce to your home or the homes of others.  Gleaning is so fun and one of the best volunteer experiences you'll ever have.
