Americans throw away billions of pounds of food each year, worth billions of dollars and enough to feed millions of people. In fact, according a recent report on food waste by Johns Hopkins University, if we were able to recover all of our wasted food, we could provide a 2,000-calorie diet to 84% of the population. Our next guest’s university is working with a major South Carolina corporation on an initiative to address this issue.
Mike Switzer interviews Dr. Jeffery Rhodehamel, department chair and professor at the Department of Food, Nutrition, and Packaging Sciences at Clemson University.
The initiative: Sonoco FRESH.
