What does making the "right" food choice mean? We're here to help sort through the clutter.

Get the Facts

Food Waste and Loss: We waste a LOT of food. But it's not just throwing away limp produce from the veggie drawer or leaving our plate half-full at a restaurant.

Surprisingly, a large portion of that is food lost in production because of disease and pests that damage crops and livestock before they mature for the market. Strategies to improve food waste must include increasing access to tools that improve animal health and well-being. Consumers can also play an important role by only buying what they need and using leftovers.

Food Production and Manufacturing: Modern, conventional, local, industrial, versus family farm... Consumers have a lot of questions about how food is raised. Farmers use a wide variety of best management practices to continually improve the safety and wholesomeness of our food, as well as the sustainability of food production. This includes how animals are cared for and how farmers conserve resources to better care for the environment.

Labels and Choices: Labels can be confusing - and they can tempt us to put food into just two categories: good and bad. But the truth is deeper than that. Cut through the confusion and see what the many food labels really mean.

Hunger and Nutrition: Hunger isn't a first-world problem; it's also not a third-world problem. It's a global problem, and you can have an impact locally. Learn what hunger looks like on a global scale today and check out how meat, milk, and eggs are an important part of a balanced diet.

It's Time to Sort Through the Clutter

What does making the "right" food choice mean? From locally-sourced to organic to all-natural, we are inundated with choices - and opinions, but while we may have the best intentions, we don't always have the best information when it comes to making those choices.

To help engage in an honest, fact-driven dialogue, ENOUGH sponsored a global study to uncover attitudes and beliefs behind our food and nutrition choices. The survey, conducted in 11 countries, measured consumer understanding and knowledge of popular food and nutrition topics, including product labels, farming methods, nutritional value and nutrient consumption, among others.

Not surprisingly, the results show parents around the world want what's best for their families: they study labels, they care about where their food comes from, and they want to put nutritionally balanced meals on the table. What is surprising: the survey found the beliefs and attitudes underpinning how and why they do this are based on an overload of fragmented and sometimes confusing information.

It's time to help sort through the clutter. Beyond social media status updates, beyond the labels, the truths about food exist. To help you better understand what your food choices mean for you and your family's health, we're sharing top ten "truths" emerging from the global survey. The goal, simply put, is to share the facts. If we can continue to engage in an honest dialogue, grounded in truth, we can create a more food secure world and foster trust between those who are growing and purchasing our food.
