Food waste during the holiday season

The holidays consist of some staple traditions: family gatherings, exchanging of gifts, but most prominently, large meals. With the joy spread during this time of year, it can be easy to overlook the negative impacts of our celebrating. Our food waste crisis is an issue year-round; however, it’s worsened during the holiday season. While we shouldn’t let waste ruin our holidays, we should work to be actively aware of the impact of our actions along with how we can limit our negative effects through simple practices.
