Prevent Food Waste Albuquerque Flyer

This flyer covers What is food waste, why it is important, how much do I waste, and the following 6 two-minute solutions. The six solutions for reducing food waste at home are; • Ask for smaller portions. • Eat your leftovers. • Shop smart: Use the “Guest-Imator” Tool for estimating the quantity of food you’ll need. • Save food scraps to compost. • Understand date labels: “Best if used by,” “Sell By,” and “Freeze by” labels are not expiration dates but rather suggestions for when a product will be best for flavor and quality.

2023 Food Waste Rescue Potential in Albuquerque-NRDC Food Calculator Results

By tackling food waste, cities can rein in climate emissions, reduce municipal waste costs, and help relieve community food insecurity. Through NRDC’s Food Matters project, we have estimated a city-wide baseline level of food waste generation and assessed the potential for increased rescue of surplus food. This snapshot can help identify opportunities for policy, outreach, and interventions to achieve the city’s goals. FOOD WASTE IN ALBUQUERQUE Though actual measurement of wasted food is optimal, waste audits can be costly, time-consuming, and sometimes impractical. The model for calculating these estimates using proxy metrics was identified from a range of national sources and NRDC’s original research. We estimate 112,600 tons of food waste are generated in Albuquerque each year. When the residential sector was included in our estimates, it is the highest food waste producing sector at nearly 52,000 tons of food waste per year. The largest industrial, commercial, and institutional (ICI) sector generating food waste is restaurants, totaling 38,000 tons, more than all other sectors combined. KEY FACTS 13% food insecurity in Albuquerque 112K tons of food waste in Albuquerque 40% of all food in the U.S. is wasted $400B of food waste each year in the U.S. 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste The report also includes recommendations including focusing on households and restaurants as well as increasing efforts with hotels and small retail stores.

community compost handout

This handout covers what a community compost co-op is and how to get involved. Community Composting aims to fill the “missing middle” between home composting and municipal composting: Compost pick-up services can be expensive and don’t exist in most parts of New Mexico. Home composting can be challenging in our arid environment and not everyone has the space for it. In order to make composting more accessible, New Mexico Compost Coalition (NMCC) members, including the City of Albuquerque, are launching seven Community Compost Co-ops across the state. Two of the bins are located within Albuquerque at Barelas Senior Center and North Valley Senior Center. What is inovlved? MEMBER RESPONSIBILITIES After an initial training session, you can join the compost cooperative. Once a month, members spend about one hour managing the bins under guidance of a local compost captain, which is time to socialize in addition to caring for and applying the compost. MEMBER BENEFITS Finished compost will be shared between the co-located community gardens and co-op members for use in their home gardens or landscaping. The biggest benefit is saving food and green waste from being wasted, which avoids harmful methane emissions from landfills, and creates healthy soil—all while learning and having fun with your neighbors! HOW TO PARTICIPATE BARELAS SENIOR CENTER 505-764-6433 714 7th St SW, 87102 NORTH VALLEY SENIOR CENTER 505-761-4025 3825 4th St NW, 87107 OR Contact Compost Captain & Sustainable Waste Specialist Sandra West at [email protected]
