Food waste is a national issue, urban and rural communities. We waste food scraps from our dining room tables, our kitchens, refrigerators. Additionally, there is food that goes to waste in gardens and orchards. As we are all sheltering in place and going to the grocery store as infrequently as possible, right now we are a bit more aware of our food and being as efficient as possible with this vital resource.
This week in 'Watch', we are linking up a free documentary: Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story. The film is a bit longer than one hour. Pull out the popcorn, settle in. After the watch, you may be inspired. Get in touch with us!
During the past several years, The O'Hara Commons has been developing a Gleaning Program. Check out our Gleaning Brochure. Property owners, get in our list if you need help with the harvest out of your orchard, or if you always have extra vegetables to harvest from your garden. Want to volunteer for our Gleaning Program? We would like to build a team of gleaners. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Renee Snyder, to be added to our contact list.
