Title:
Food and Packaging Waste Prevention Tool

Abstract:
Food service establishments can use this tool to track the daily amount, type of, and reason for wasted food and packaging with paper logs. Users enter information into the Food and Packaging Waste Prevention Tool (an Excel spreadsheet) that automatically creates graphs and data summaries to help identify patterns of waste generation. Based on these patterns, businesses can make strategic changes to their operation.
