According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), more than 37 million
tons of food waste was generated in 2013 alone. It is the single largest component going into municipal landfills, and quickly generates methane, a greenhouse gas that has an impact 25 times greater
on climate change than carbon dioxide. Food waste is an issue that happens not only in our homes and grocery stores, but it is also a huge problem on college campuses. The average college student
generates 142 pounds of food waste a year, according to Recycling Works. Meet Mike Truong and Jianwen Yin as they show us how to reduce food waste while creating delicious meals.
