Feed people. Feed animals. Feed the soil.
Unused or discarded food is a resource, not garbage. Depending on its quality, food and food by-products can be diverted to food pantries, soup kitchens, and livestock pens. When nothing edible remains, the scraps and culls can be composted and returned to the soil to nourish and support the next generation of plants. That’s true sustainability, the recycling system designed by nature to keep the Earth in balance. Recycle urban food waste — don’t burn or bury.
