Wasted food is wasted water.

From birth to table, turkeys can use over 450 gallons of water a piece for their care, slaughter, and transportation. A holiday ham can use up to 550 gallons.

Respect the resources that make a meal possible by avoiding food waste. Prepare an appropriate amount of food – not an overabundance, take only what you’ll eat, and divvy up leftovers for sharing or freezing.
