Taste It, Don't Waste It
We waste millions of tons of food in this country, from the farm to the fridge. Supermarkets sometimes dispose of food that's still fine. Restaurants often scrap what they can't sell. And consumers, guided by expiration labels that don't necessarily indicate spoilage are likely to purge perfectly good food from their fridges and pantries. Monday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas, why we waste good food, what impact it has and what's being done to stop it.
