Lee to give talk on food waste, climate change link on Dec. 8

Food Rescue Maine bannerSusanne Lee will give a talk about the link between food waste and climate change at the Northeast Harbor Library on December 8 at 5:30 p.m. The public can attend the talk in person or by Zoom. Go to the December calendar on the library’s website for information on registering for the Zoom option.

Lee talked about this issue last fall in an interview on Maine Public Radio. She said the value of the food that’s wasted “is not counting the cost of the water, the energy, the labor that goes into producing that food that’s never eaten. They say it’s analogous to going to the grocery store, buying five bags of groceries and on the way to your trunk you drop two of them.”
