EcoMyths: Is food waste unavoidable?

According to the Worldwatch Institute, Americans waste three times more food between Thanksgiving and New Year’s than the rest of the year. Globally, we waste one-third of all food produced for us to eat (1.3 billion tons), according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization. For our EcoMyths segment, Kate Sackman of EcoMyths Alliance joins us with Dr. Barbara Willard of DePaul University, to bust the myth that large holiday food bills and waste are inevitable.
