Everybody eats and everybody throws food away, but our discards are dinner for someone else somewhere along the food chain. The ecosystem services provided by what we throw away can help to fertilize the soil we grow our food in, and reduce greenhouse gases and water use.

 

How can we be more ecological about how we buy, store, and utilize our precious food for our health and that of the environment? How can we dedicate what we don’t eat to its highest and best use? Join us for our next Island Conversation about food and what we do with it!
