According to the National Coffee Association, on average American adults drink 3 cups of coffee per day. A search of the internet shows numerous ways that even coffee grounds can be put to good use!

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, "10.5% (13.8 million) of U.S. households were food insecure at some time during 2020."

Each year, the American consumer spends about $1,300 on food that they don't eat, according to researcher Zach Conrad in William & Mary College's Department of Kinesiology & Health Sciences.

According to WWF and Tesco, of all the food grown, approximately 40% goes uneaten.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration estimates that "confusion over date labeling [on food] accounts for approximately 20% of consumer food waste."
