A free presentation in Kewaunee County that takes a deep dive into food waste Tuesday could save you money in the long run. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 31 percent of food is wasted, accounting for approximately 133 billion pounds of product and $161 billion being thrown away every year. Hosted by Kewaunee County Home and Community Education, the presentation hopes to give people tips on how to keep food out of the trash and money in your wallet. HCE member Judy Oftedahl says she expects the program to be very useful.
The food waste presentation will take place at the Kewaunee County Highway Department building in Kewaunee beginning at 6 p.m.
