Food Waste, do something
Food Waste is incredibly sad. Americans throw away $165 billion worth of food every year. It adds to a cycle of malnutrition, poverty, climate change and farmers not being paid a fair wage.
Below is Last Week Tonight with John Oliver comical yet provoking take on the subject.
I have always been aware of Food Waste and purposely buy and support vendors who sell their ‘seconds’ rather than throwing them out. Below is an example of what I purchased from a farmer’s market yesterday. It was discounted to $5 for whatever you could get in the box because the food was no longer aesthetically pleasing. I filled two boxes and I think this food looks great and tastes normal.
