According to a recent article in the Washington Post, Americans throw away nearly $170 billion dollars of food every year. That’s an astounding figure when nearly 50 million Americans live with the reality of food insecurity.
In this Sustainable Ventura Podcst, City of Ventura Environmental Specialist Jill Santos talks to Sustainable Ventura’s Maryann Ridini Spencer who helps shed some light on this critical issue.
Jill also talks about environmentalist Rob Greenfield’s documentary screening and presentation focusing on preventing food waste and other green topics, on Friday, April 24 from 6-9pm at Ventura’s Bell Arts Factory, 432 Ventura Avenue. The EVENT is FREE and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
