The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that Americans trash 40 percent of our entire food supply. That works out to as much as $2,000 per year for a family of four. But how does that stand up on Thanksgiving, a holiday known for its leftovers?
We decided to put the question to you: Do you contribute to America’s food waste with your Thanksgiving leftovers?
Post your after Thanksgiving meal photos on Instagram with the hashtag #leftovers and include our handle @MarketplaceAPM to see your photo magically appear on our map.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
