Calif. Officials Seek Solutions to Food Waste
How much food do you throw away? Between the fruit that doesn't make it off the farm, the eggs you didn't eat in time and the leftovers restaurants trash, Americans are tossing about 40 percent of their food. That's the finding of a recent study which has California agriculture officials buzzing. They meet Tuesday in Sacramento to tackle that problem in the state that produces most of the nation's fruits and veggies.
Program Finds Homes for the Homeless
San Diego, Fresno and San Jose are among some 200 communities across the country trying a new housing strategy that's moving hundreds of chronically homeless people off the streets and into apartments. Santa Clara County is investing $1 million in a pilot program, and tracking whether permanent housing will really keep people from returning to life on the streets.
