Fresh fruit and cheese can be thrown into airtight containers or zip-top bags and stored in the refrigerator. Do keep in mind that your charcuterie board fixin's will hold better if they've been sitting out for less than an hour. If it's been longer than that, you may want to pitch them. Word of advice: You can always put out less food on your board initially, then add to it if you're worried about food waste.
