The amount of food Americans throw away in the trash is astounding, yet a large percentage of the population struggles to put food on the table. Let Illinois Extension show you how to do your part by understanding expiration dates, planning meals with what you have on hand, and knowing how to store food safely and effectively with Nutrition and Wellness Educator Lisa Peterson. She will also teach you how to use whole vegetables to create easy, tasty dishes while minimizing food waste. Come practice cooking with parts of produce you typically throw away!
