Today is Stop Food Waste Day!

By Shelby Tuttle

Today, April 24, is Stop Food Waste Day and local Arizona nonprofit,
Waste Not, is teaming up with Valley restaurant, Birdcall, to help raise awareness. Arizona is known as the worst offender for food waste in our country, with $9.5 billion in food being thrown away every year.

To recognize the day on April 24, two Birdcall locations right here in the Valley (7204 E. Shea Blvd in Scottsdale and 7025 N. 7th St. in Phoenix) will be hosting an all-day fundraiser from open to close. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to supporting Waste Not’s mission of alleviating hunger and rescuing food before it ends up in our landfills. A not-so-fun fact? Rotting food in our landfills accounts for nearly 10% of global methane gas emissions.

For every dollar of food and beverages purchased at Birdcall today, using the code wastenot424, Birdcall will donate 25% to Waste Not. The code can be entered at check-out both in-store and online. The code can also be used in the drive-thru and guests should mention the code prior to placing their order.

Waste Not works with local businesses and grocery stores to rescue food before it spoils and ends up in the landfills. Once collected, Waste Not then works to deliver this food to 85 local nonprofit organizations that support Arizonans struggling from food insecurity.
