Food Waste

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. The solutions stories in this collection describe new technologies, laws and cultural shifts that are helping make food waste a thing of the past. Learn how top chefs in Britain have started a movement to cook with "expired" foods; about legislation in South Korea to reduce food waste; and about new technologies that make it possible to track fruits as they ripen, convert food waste into electricity, and keep food fresh for longer in solar-powered "Cold Hubs." Finally, read about two grocery store owners in the Netherlands who opened a restaurant with an entire menu based solely on food that otherwise would have gone to waste.
