news articles: 1) Food waste: an unappetizing $27B problem and 2) Creative solutions to handle food waste

Hi everyone,

I missed this article when it was originally published back in January, but thought i would post it anyway.

Here are 2 interesting article on the topic of food waste. The second one relates very closely to what OFRE does in collecting fruit in backyards. The buzzword to capture this concept is called: gleaning.

Both of these article give food for thought and are worth pondering as we continue to hibernate in the edmonton cold, thinking about the upcoming warmer seasons right around the corner.
