Life moves fast and sometimes too fast for our refrigerators. Americans end up wasting 40% of food produced for consumption due to hectic schedules and improper storage. But never fear! There are ways to keep your food fresher longer - long enough to keep up with the craziness of life – and save money in the process!
Food waste expert Jonathan Bloom, shares his tips to help us fight and prevent food waste and the great problems waste causes to our world!
Jonathan Bloom[] has been researching and writing about food waste since 2005, when he got his start as a volunteer at DC Kitchens[], a Washington, DC-based organization working to reclaim surplus food to redistribute to people in need. Bloom is the author of American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It)[]. Bloom’s passion is to prevent food waste, the great problems that waste poses to the environment, and what consumers everywhere can do to eliminate waste.
