The coronavirus pandemic has changed much of our daily lives. The masks. The social distancing. The major disruptions in our food supply chain.

Many restaurants are still closed, or seating at reduced capacity. Grocery store shelves have been swept clean of essentials like flour and beans. This all likely means you're paying a lot more attention to what you have in your pantry and fridge, and wondering how long you can hold out until your next grocery run. (Victory garden, anyone?)

It turns out that there are plenty of ways to stretch your food stash further—not by waiting weeks for those tomatoes to finally grow, but by simply repurposing the food scraps and leftovers you typically toss in the trash. This will not only save money and extend your time between store trips, but you can also feel good knowing you're recycling items that were otherwise destined for the landfill. It's a win-win all round!
