This is the SHORT VERSION session 01 of the Wasted Food Series. Think of it as the Cliff Notes version. It features the most actionable take-aways from the longer interview. It's a great way to introduce people to the issue with little time invested. Today we meet Chris Hunt of ReFED: Rethinking Food Waste through Education and Data. We discuss how in the US, about 40% of our food goes to waste due to confusion over food labeling "eat by" dates, rejection of imperfect produce by groceries, lack of cold storage in food banks and many other reasons. We learn how we reduce food waste in half in as little as 10 years by applying the solutions offered in ReFED's Roadmap: Food Waste Prevention Solutions, Food Waste Recovery Solutions and Food Waste Recycling Solutions.
