Feeding America, the largest food collection and distribution network in the United States, is tackling food waste in a new campaign to get restaurants and grocers to donate food rather than send it to landfills. The MealConnect program seeks to reduce the nearly 50 percent of food wasted between the field and the home. You can encourage local business to participate, as well as volunteer to work in the community. Liz Baldridge, director of Sustainability and Food Waste Initiatives, and Zuani Villareal, director of communication at Feeding America, join us to discuss food waste.
