Making a point about food waste
12 Jan, 2012
In a past article on Organic Connections, we covered food activist, Jonathan Bloom, and his book American Wasteland. The article and book talk about how America wastes a huge percentage of its food for a variety of reasons.
Daniel Klein is a chef, activist, and filmmaker living in Minneapolis. Daniel has been documenting his culinary, agricultural and hunting adventures on film in a series called The Perennial Plate, featuring long winters, urban gardens, ice fishing, slaughterhouses, foraging for wild edibles, and more.
In this video from The Perennial Plate, Daniel makes a point about food waste in our system by finding a volume of free food free thrown away for cosmetic, technical or packaging reasons that have nothing to do with its freshness or healthfulness. Follow Daniel on twitter @perennialplate.
