Show Notes

Got food waste? Over 30-40% of all food is wasted. Yet, we have people in our own communities and elsewhere that are going hungry.

We know composting is important, but reducing food waste first is the goal.

However, when we throw kids into the mix, it can feel completely out of our control and overwhelming.

In this episode, I'm talking with Alison Mountford of ends & stems - a professional chef who has a focus on helping busy families get food on the table without the stress, drama, and overwhelm, with the added bonus of reducing food waste. Yes, even if you have CHOOSEY eaters!
