Fixing The Food Waste Problem


Your mother said the leftovers you threw out in your house could feed a small country… but was she really close to the truth?

In the first part of Tuesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Sasha Lyutse, a policy analyst and Natural Resources Defense Council blogger, about the environmental effects of wasting food and check in with American Restaurant executive chef Debbie Gold for tips on how you can make a new meal out of your leftovers.

Sasha Lyutse is a policy analyst at Natural Resources Defense Council. Debbie Gold is the executive chef at the American Restaurant.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
