Today’s podcast is on refrigerators. Refrigerators have been the symbol of self-sufficiency and plenty in America for some decades now. These electrified storage units are also the hub of the 40 percent of food we waste in America.

Today’s question is: How can we reduce waste in our homes meanwhile what are the ways in which global leaders are tackling hunger abroad?

We’ll talk with Dana Gunders, Staff Scientist focused on Food and Agriculture, at the Natural Resources Defense Council. She  speaks with us about reducing food waste and her book, Waste-Free Kitchen Handbook.

We’ll also chat with Barbara Ekwall, Senior Liaison Officer at the North America office of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Ekwall will be speaking with us about this year’s annual state of food insecurity world report and the progress of millennium development goals to reduce world hunger.

Be sure to check out our video where we take it to the streets!
