Less Food Waste

40% of all food in the United States goes uneaten, equivalent to $165 billion annually. All of this wasted food is staggering, considering 17.5 million U.S. households are food insecure, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Freezing means less wasted food and more access to nutritious portioned meals in every season and community. Frozen foods are often lower in cost-per-serving and have a greater shelf life than fresh or refrigerated foods, helping reduce spoilage and waste. Frozen foods are utilized in federal feeding programs because of these attributes. Frozen fruits, vegetables and prepared meals can be eaten when desired and stored for later use.
