Eat Smart, Waste Less Clinton County (ESWL)                                      

Nearly 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is thrown away. Wasted food is one of the largest sources of methane gas production on the planet. These facts, coupled with the prevalence of food insecurity, make food waste a big deal. The good news? It is a public health issue we can all do something about.                                         

By making small changes in the way we shop, store foods, prepare meals and dispose of scraps and extra food, we can assure good food is getting to those who need it most AND we can reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfills.                                                                                                                                

CCHD is tackling food waste through Eat Smart, Waste Less Clinton County. The project is supported through funding from the Environmental Protection Fund, administered by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Project activities aim to:

  • Increase awareness of the negative health and environmental effects of food waste among residents through education.
  • Reduce perceived barriers to food waste reduction strategies in home and commercial settings by offering practical and actionable solutions.
  • Establish small scale food scraps collection sites within the county.
  • Integrate food waste reduction activities into a local food action plan.
