Hundreds of companies all over the United States are taking part in an effort to reduce food waste.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency have developed the "U.S. food waste challenge." The program aims to reduce, recover and recycle food waste.

The different ways to do this include researching new composting techniques, as well as increasing the amount of food that can be donated, instead of discarded.
