Has anyone else noticed that food waste – the topic of conversation we at Harvest Power have been “stalking” for 5+ years now – is all of a sudden making headlines in national and international news?
First, for example, take Harvest Public Media’s “Tossed Out: Food Waste In America” series. The “Studying a Family’s Waste” story rang the most true with our audiences. They call their kitchen catcher the “bucket of judgement” – classic! They have some great tips on making sure their food goes to its highest and best use.
Second, also this season, Elizabeth Royte explores how 1/3 of our food is lost or wasted in National Geographic magazine. Just as she does in Garbage Land, she maps out the forces at work. Indeed, food waste is identified as a threat on national security.
