Listen to Marla Camp’s second episode of “Growing Home” on Edible Radio. Edible Radio broadcasts stories about why food matters to a national audience. You can listen online, download the podcasts, subscribe and find them also on The Huffington Post. On this episode of “Growing Home,” Marla talks with Jonathan Bloom, an award-winning journalist and food waste expert who created the blog Wasted Food and has written on topics related to food and the environment published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Newsweek and Variety, among others. His new book, American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and what we can do about It) is a masterful investigation of how we waste approximately 40% of all the food that we grow or raise in this country, with suggestions for how we can make simple changes in the ways we buy and eat food that will make a difference. With its timely message and first-rate reporting, American Wasteland recently won the 2011 IACP Cookbook Award in the “Food Matters” category. Jonathan tells us how to discover where all this good food is falling through the cracks and how we can recover it—every day!
