On this episode of How Great Cities Are Fed, Karen Karp and Ben Kerrick explore the changing realities of food waste. There has been a significant expansion in the amount of food waste since Hedden’s book was published in 1929. Today, we waste about 40% of our food in the U.S. – but the government recently announced that it wants to cut that in half by the year 2030. Join Karen, Ben, and their guests for a discussion of how we might get there. Guests on this episode include:
  • JoAnne Berkenkamp, Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Dominika Jarosz, Feedback / Feeding the 5000
  • Christine Datz-Romero, Lower East Side Ecology Center
  • Gena McKinley, Austin Resource Recovery, City of Austin
  • Thomas McQuillan, Baldor
