Cutting waste is one of the food world’s top priorities. Up to 40 percent of all the food we produce ends up in the trash, and there are programs up and down the supply chain to try to pare that down.

"We Think Fresh Is Best. But to Fight Food Waste, We Need to Think Again." is from the February 16, 2017 Food section of The Washington Post. It was written by Tamar Haspel and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
