Did you know that more than 40% of food in the United States goes to waste? That's more than 20 pounds of food wasted per person per month! If we could just salvage one quarter of what the world is wasting, it would be enough to feed the world's entire hungry population every year. 

These numbers are shocking, but there is a silver lining— combatting food waste is receiving more national attention than ever before. Anthony Bourdain even has a documentary called "Wasted!" coming out this October to address it. 

There's no need to wait for Bourdain's documentary to get started reducing your own food waste at home. Here are our quick tips and an easy infographic to save on Pinterest or place on your refrigerator at home.

1. Embrace Ugly Produce

Grower’s Organic is known by chefs and groceries across the state for having the best quality and freshest product. This is because we know how to store it properly and turn our inventory quickly. We focus on this because we hate to see anything wasted...

Connectivity is important to us. We believe that people should know where their food comes from. For more than a decade, we have committed ourselves to sourcing the highest quality organic produce and putting it into the hands of the people.

We couldn't do this without our amazing Colorado organic farmers that grow amazing fruit and vegetables every year. These farm spotlights are meant to champion those farmers who are helping make Colorado a more healthy, sustainable (and delicious!) place.

We've heard it since we were young, eating in highchairs— "Eat your greens!" With visions of Popeye eating canned spinach to grow stronger, it's been ingrained in our minds for as long as we can remember. But, as adults, we've thankfully expanded outside of canned spinach!

Grower's Organic carries more than 30 types of fresh, organic greens throughout the year — from Colorado and our surrounding regions. We can't get enough of these nutrient-dense superfoods, and we hope that this guide will help you squeeze more greens into your diet too. 

WHY YOU NEED THEM

So we know the rules, but have you heard the reasons why? With more and more people turning to trendy multivitamins for nutrients, we're inclined to point them back to the good ole' green stuff. 

Dark, leafy greens are an incredible low-calorie source of vitamins and minerals, including: 

  • Vitamin A - supports immune function, vision, cell growth and more

  • Vitamin C - supports skin h...

Connectivity is important to us. We believe that people should know where their food comes from. For more than a decade, we have committed ourselves to sourcing the highest quality organic produce and putting it into the hands of the people. Oftentimes, that's through our wonderful restaurant partners across Colorado— ones that share our mission for organic food. These partner spotlights are meant to champion those businesses that are helping make dining in Colorado a more healthy, sustainable (and delicious!) experience. 

MEET THE VILLAGE CORK

One of our favorite restaurants in Denver is nestled at the intersection of Louisiana and Pearl Street, and it's clear to see why we love it so much— in their own words, The Village Cork explains, "Eat, drink and be merry is not just a toast. It's a way of life for us."

This relaxing, wine-focused restaurant is comfortable and consistent. Even though the menu is ever-changing with the seasons, The Village Cork is a staple you kn...
