Chef Anthony Bourdain hosts this interesting documentary on the massive amount of wasted food in our current supply chain, and how it could be diverted from landfills to feed humans, animals, and plants.
Via the film's site:
Can you imagine if every time you opened your wallet, a third of your cash fell out – and you did nothing about it? Consider the fact that one-third of the food grown annually for human consumption is never eaten – for one reason or another, it ends up in the garbage. That’s $218 billion – or 1.3 billion tons – of food annually. In America, families chuck about 25% of the food and beverages they buy at a cost of $1,365 to $2,275 annually. Yet at the same time, 800 million people around the globe are starving. It’s a problem – but one with no shortage of solutions.
The Rockefeller Foundation supported Zero Point Zero Films and Anthony Bourdain to expose the magnitude of this problem globally, while showing simple changes we can all make to eat more and waste less.
Bonus video: animal-based food is pretty good at "nose to tail" use of all parts, but can the same happen with farmed fruits and vegetables?
They have a number of easy steps you can take right now to reduce food waste.
