mandyleith #JustEatItFilm After six months Jen and Grant spent a total of $200 on food. During this time they saved over $20,000 in food that would have gone to the landfill.
Food waste is something we can handle! We can do something about it and we can do something about it now!

mandyleith #JustEatItFilm "From an energy perspective there is an estimate that about 4% of all US energy consumption is embedded in the food that we ultimately toss. So, 4% of all the energy we are using is being thrown away (watering). (Water as a precious commodity) The water that is embedded in the food we throwaway could meet the household needs of 500 million people 1w

mandyleith #JustEatItFilm '#Gleaning' is the practice of going out into harvested fields and recovering goods that would otherwise be plowed under.
The term 'gleaning' dates back to the old testament. It used to refer to the practice where hungry folks would go out into the fields after harvest and pick anything would've been left behind. Many farmers would leave parts of their fields unharvested.
