It seems like a simple problem. Nearly a pound of food per day in every household gets tossed in America — a country with some 44 million food insecure people. Can’t we just send would-be wasted food to hungry mouths? Unfortunately, our food systems are notoriously inefficient, with waste found on farms, in grocery stories, schools, and our refrigerators. This special series, produced in partnership with Inverse, looks at how data, technology, ingenuity, and common sense can be used to fight this waste. With all these ingredients, and a handful of worms, the solution may be within reach.
