August 7, 2017: Did you know that 40% of all food grown in the United States each year winds up in the trash? Why is so much food wasted when nearly 1 in 5 children in California goes to bed hungry? What can we do differently on farms and in restaurants, grocery stores and our own homes to reduce the amount of food wasted? Host Ethan Elkind and guests explore the topic of food waste and what several Bay Area organizations are doing about it.
