On the Street

What food do you throw away most often?


LAUREN WARD

That's hard. I feel like I overbuy lettuce and then throw it away.

What helps you throw less food away?

Not buying as much at once, buying it throughout the week rather than

all at the beginning of the week.


JUDY LEACH

Fresh vegetables. Lettuce.

Why do you throw those away?

I don't use it quickly enough and it gets bad.


MCKENZIE SCHEXNIDER

I feel like any type of greens. Lettuce, spinach, we use it but we don't go through it fast enough with such big bags and boxes, if that makes sense.

What food do you never need to throw away?

Any type of fruit. We're always eating a bunch of fruit.


CHRIS DEANGELIS

Lunch meat.

What food do you never need to throw away?

Cheese. Cheese and wine.


LYNN MCCLATCHEY

My bulk salad, you know? It gets nasty and I throw it away.

What food do you never throw away?

My half-and-half, my coffee. Is that considered food? And my olive oil.
