U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions

The National Goal for Reducing Food Loss and Waste

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.

For the past three years, USDA and EPA have released annual reports providing updates reported by the  Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions on their progress towards the national goal of reducing food loss and waste in their U.S. operations. The USDA is proud to release the 2023 Milestone Report which summarizes actions and impacts of 24 Champions.

Below are the 2021 and 2022 reports which are based on submissions by the 2030 Champions.

We encourage more businesses and organizations to become U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions and reduce food loss and waste in their operations. To join the U.S. Food Loss and Waste 2030 Champions, organizations may complete and submit the 2030 Champions form (PDF, 472 KB), in which they commit to reduce food loss and waste in their own operations and periodically report their progress on their websites.
