The Results of Last Year's Challenge

In the first Almanac Newsmaker Challenge ever, we asked kids to Step Up to the Plate to Fight Food Waste. National Geographic Explorer Tristram Stuart inspired kids with the facts — Enough food is wasted to feed all the 1 billion malnourished people on the planet three times over — and offered ideas on how we can all make a difference. Hundreds of kids around the world took the pledge to waste less food and inspire others to do the same.

This chart shows who stepped up!
