To help you make better use of the food you purchase, the Department of Agriculture collaborated with Cornell University and the Food Marketing Institute to create the FoodKeeper app. This app is available for both Android and Apple devices.

The FoodKeeper app offers storage advice about more than 400 food and beverage items. It also has the following features:

  • Storage guidelines for specific foods and storage conditions — refrigerator, freezer and room temperature
  • Cooking tips for meat, fish and eggs to keep you safe from foodborne illnesses
  • Interactive calendar function to help you manage your food storage
