Thanks. Sent this to the NEFoods listserv (NEfood@elist.tufts.edu) and will include it in the next edition of my City Agriculture links list whose archives are at http://cityag.blogspot.com

Excellent episode of CBC Marketplace, showing food waste at a Walmart in Canada.

Update to be aired tonight: Walmart are making some changes to the way they deal with surplus food.

Most of the things I dump are things friends bring in our family doesn’t eat on a regular basis. The last food I threw out was half a spoiled jar of onion dip. And people are actually including coffee grounds as discarded food? What do you do with them, make a frittata?
