Cans Get You Cooking on Earth Day: Monday #gno Twitter Party
Has this ever happened to you? The fresh fruits and vegetables you purchased for the week spoiled before you could use them, and now they need to be thrown away. We’ve all been there. Did you know that the average American family throws out an estimated 25% of the food and beverages they buy? That translates into $1,350-$2,275 worth of food each year – or as much as $43 a week!
There’s nothing more frustrating than throwing away money in the form of spoiled produce and protein. Cans Get You Cooking reminds us that we can avoid wasting food by turning to our pantry – or Cantry – for mealtime inspiration. Since cans have a long shelf life and their portion sizes are suited to both individuals and families, and most recipes are designed around these sizes, they help to ensure that no food goes to waste.
And cans not only help reduce the amount of the food we waste, they also reduce our impact on the environment. Metal cans are endlessly recyclable, and in fact, are the most recycled containers in America today – keeping metal out of landfills and saving significant energy. Plus, the can is one of the best ways to get food from the farm to your family table – sealing in foods’ freshness, flavor and nutrition – so you can feel confident about serving them at anytime. They truly make homemade meals easy and achievable.
So when you want to make the smart choice for your family and the environment, the answer is right in your pantry – canned foods.
Join “Cans Get You Cooking”, Mom It Forward, RD Rebecca Scritchfield and our panel of experts as we chat about making a difference for your family and the environment by stocking your pantry with canned ingredients that are essential to nutritious, delicious and easy homemade meals. The party will be held on Monday, April 21 from 9-10 p.m. ET (8CT, 7MT, 6PT). Click here to see details about the giveaway and enter for a chance to win.
