Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions

The staggering amount of wasted food in the United States has far-reaching impacts on food security, resource conservation and climate change. To help galvanize national efforts to reduce food loss and waste, USDA and EPA announced the United States’ first-ever food loss and waste reduction goal in September 2015, calling for a 50 percent reduction by 2030.

Government alone cannot reach this goal. It will require effort and action from the entire food system. The U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions are stepping up to do their part to help the nation reach this critical goal.

The U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions are businesses and organizations that have made a public commitment to reduce food loss and waste in their own operations in the United States by 50 percent by the year 2030. Champions include leaders from across the food chain.
