One food issue that truly defines us in the United States is the amount of it that we waste daily. The U.S. is the global leader in food waste, with Americans discarding nearly 40 million tons of food every year.
On Thursday, Dec. 8, these three groups are partnering for a Waste-to-Table Dinner to teach the community innovative ways to keep food out of landfills. Guests will also enjoy an intentionally-curated meal crafted by PizzaPlex and Make Food Not Waste chefs.
Tostada founder Serena Maria Daniels and Make Food Not Waste executive director Danielle Todd joined CultureShift to talk about how reducing food waste can be better for the planet and for your budget.
“Wasting food is a luxury, let’s be honest. And that’s a luxury, I think that we’re not going to be seeing for too much longer.” — Danielle Todd, Make Food Not Waste
