The average person ends up trashing 25 percent of the food they buy from the grocery store. This can mean fresh produce, expired dairy, stale bread. The list goes on and on.

Guests:

  • Dr. Elena Belavina, associate professor, operations management, Cornell University
  • Jenna Harris, senior manager, donor relations & supply chain, City Harvest.
