The Lexicon of Sustainability: Food Waste

In the U.S., nearly 40% of the food we grow, distribute, put on store shelves then ultimately buy as consumers never gets eaten. But cooperative associations of organic food producers like Marin Organic based in Point Reyes Station are striving to cut down on food waste. They organize volunteer-driven events for individuals to glean, or gather up leftover crops from local farms, that can be donated to food banks, school lunch programs and other non-profits. Learn more about gleaning and other efforts to combat food waste in this new video from the Lexicon of Sustainability project and filmmaker Douglas Gayeton.
