Thanks to our friend, Susan L. Miller, I just head about this study and report on how the US can solve its multibillion food waste problem. 

As you probably know, Respecting Our Elders has made a big dent in the food waste problem here in Marin by picking up and directly distributing perfectly good and edible food that stores like Whole Foods and Safeway donate to us every day of the week.

Donations to food rescue organizations like ours is only one aspect that is covered in this report and more education across the country is needed. Do keep an eye out for our book showing other communities how to set up and run an all-volunteer food rescue organization like ours with minimal capital and time.
