It’s nice to keep seeingĀ food waste in the news, especially without much of a peg. That we waste 40% of our food is news enough!

TheĀ Great Corn Rescue of 2012. Music to my ears.

This passage from The UN Dispatch is in reference to the head of Darden Restaurants:

…even though his company increased their diversion of waste by 14% in the last 3 years, food remains 1/3 of their waste, by weight.

Finally, I can’t wait for the Spoiled app to come out. Considering we’re wasting 25% of what we bring home, it can’t hurt to have an app to help us from overbuying.

    Jonathan, I work for Staples and we throw away so much food daily because they are afraid of being sued if they donate. Please contact me maybe we can figure something out. Just because the outside pkg’g is ripped they trash everything won’t even give to the people working there. Help it breaks my heart everytime I have to throw this stuff away. I’m pretty sure if there was a pick up of some sort we could work something out.
