COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Several state agencies are joining with private groups to try to reduce food waste in South Carolina.

The groups are announcing the “Don’t Waste Food S.C.” campaign Wednesday at Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia.

The Commerce Department, the Department of Health and Environmental Control and the Agriculture Department are working with Feeding America which represents food banks across the country and Re-Soil Compost.

The groups say they want to see most of the 600,000 tons of food wasted in South Carolina each year donated to the hungry or turned into compost.

The organizations are holding a news conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
