Food not only physically sustains us, it connects us through generations and cultures around the world. Whether it’s a traditional dinner that our grandmother cooked, the breakfast sandwiches our dads taught us to make, or coffee with your colleagues to escape the office for 15 minutes, food and beverages bring us closer together in a uniquely intimate experience.
This story from the Your Shot community is a celebration of food intersecting with our love of photography. We can use this as an opportunity to be thankful for what we have, and as a reminder to give back and practice thoughtful consumption to reduce food waste.
You can find tips and suggestions below on ways you can give back.
Here is a list of resources to learn more about food waste and how you can give back. It's just a start so feel free to drop links to resources you know about in the discussion below.
