Family cooking together

Nothing is more frustrating than throwing away food because you didn't prepare it before it expired. With the increased cost of groceries, not only is this wasteful but it can get expensive, too.

Not everyone has the ability to plan their meals and shop for specific groceries every week, which often leads to food waste, especially if your schedule only allows for one big grocery order every week or two. A new website is offering some hope for families that struggle with finding recipes and family dinner ideas that not only will their kids love, but this site also helps combat food waste.
