Focusing on Food Waste
This New York Times article from May 18, 2008 regarding food waste is relevant now more than ever. A 1995 Federal study determined that 96.5 BILLION pounds of food was wasted - food discarded in our homes, cafeterias, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. That does not include food processing losses on farms, by processors, or wholesalers.
What can we do to reduce Food Waste and save money?
Plastic Bag Ban
Open Door does not implement this until November, but we are starting the transition now. For now, please bring your own reusable bags for the front area: bread, produce and daily prepared items.
