Ugly Food - David Bobanick

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:33 pm on 18 January 2016

'Ugly' food... it's the surplus produce that goes to waste – or is dumped – and never makes it to the supermarket.

The USDA estimated 31% of the food grown in the United States in 2010 went uneaten.

David Bobanick's organisation Farm to Food Pantry has delivered around 100 million kilos of fresh produce to those in need in his home state of Washington. He tells Jesse Mulligan that it's time we enter the 'action phase' in the fight against food waste.
