Food Waste And Hunger in Northeast Ohio You may recall your mother telling you to clean your plate because it's wrong to waste food while others starve. Mom’s still right about that. But throwing food away also has a negative impact on the environment, filling up the nation's landfills with tons of food scraps that create methane gas as they rots. Can we feed the hungry while starving the landfills? Let's talk about local efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle food waste, tomorrow at 9 on the Sound of Ideas.
