What is Food Waste Prevention Week?

After meeting with the founders of California's Food Waste Prevention Week in 2020, our Florida collaborative decided to make Florida Food Waste Prevention Week a reality. After a wildly successful inaugural year in 2021, more states, cities and organizations have joined what has become the Food Waste Prevention Week movement.


We experienced huge growth in 2023, with more than 600 partners across 48 states (and 11 countries!) who have joined our mission to educate and inspire real cultural change on food waste! 

We're excited and humbled to be a part of something that is truly moving the needle on reducing food waste, supporting a healthier environment, saving families money, and addressing food insecurity in our communities.
