Food waste and what it’s costing us


On this episode of The Cost of Everything, we take a closer look at how wasteful countries are when it comes to food. How much does the average American waste in food every year compared to the average citizen of the Global South? Is food waste an economic problem, and, if so, how can we solve it? Host Christy Ai spoke with the editor of Biocycle, Nora Goldstein, about the cost of food waste and how perfectly good food gets trashed while perpetuating more hunger and poverty.
