The Greatest Crime
in Christendom

To buy—to cook—to eat more than you need; to waste a single morsel of food that can be used—is a crime.

Ten million have died bravely on the field of battle. They at least had a chance. They gave their all willingly and unselfishly.

Over twenty million have died of starvation—without even a chance to fight. To these death has come only as a relief from torture worse than death—starvation.

It is our job—yours and ours—to save food so that the millions of starving people in Europe may have SOMETHING to eat.

Don't
Waste
Food

Eat Less
Waste Nothing

Live Simply—avoid all food waste.
