Jonathan Bloom talks about his book, American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It)

American Wasteland book, smallGrocery prices and the forsaken foods at the back of your refrigerator seem to increase weekly. After reading American Wasteland, you will never look at your shopping list, refrigerator, plate or wallet the same way again. Jonathan Bloom wades into the garbage heap to unearth what our squandered food says about us, why it matters, and how you can make a difference starting in your own kitchen — reducing waste and saving money. Interviews with experts such as chef Alice Waters and food psychologist Brian Wansink, among others, uncover not only how and why we waste, but, most importantly, what we can do about it.

Jonathan Bloom is a journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Boston Globe. He is a graduate of Wesleyan University.

Presented in partnership with United Way of Central Maryland, Wesleyan University, and JHU Center for a Livable Future.

The Ivy Bookshop will be selling copies of the book at a booksigning following the program.
