According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Americans throw away nearly $170 billion dollars of food every year. That's an astounding figure when nearly 50 million Americans live with the reality of food insecurity.
Why is this happening? What can be done about it?
How does food waste impact our water supply? Greenhouse gas emissions?
In this Sustainable Ventura Podcst, City of Ventura Environmental Specialist Jill Santos talks to Sustainable Ventura's Maryann Ridini Spencer who helps shed some light on this critical issue. Jill also shares helpful green tips and green living ideas.
UPCOMING EVENT: On Friday, April 24 from 6-9pm at Ventura's Bell Arts Factory, 432 Ventura Avenue, Environmentalist Rob Greenfield will screen his documentary focusing on how to prevent food waste and other green topics.
