Did you know Americans throw away nearly one-third of the food they buy every year, costing the average household $1,800 annually? Mid-America Regional Council is launching Kansas City Food Wise to help combat food waste in our community, increase access to healthy food, and build a sustainable food system that benefits us, our community + the planet.

Individuals and organizations can utilize Food Wise’s tools (think: a Food System Map and community involvement page) to learn how to plan, prepare, and share food in order to cut down on waste.
