Writer Jonathan Bloom is in Portland today to promote his new book: American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do about It).
American Wasteland chronicles how we waste food from farm to fork and examines the impact of our squandering. With an upbeat tone, the book offers suggestions on how we—as a nation and as individuals—can trim our waste. A word of warning: It’s a book that forces you to reconsider your approach to food. Because once you’re looking for food waste, it’s hard to miss.
Jonathan blogs about the same topic at Wasted Food. A few years ago he blogged about a visit to Portland’s Reed College, home to an infamous, and arguably virtuous, scrounging culture.
