Wichita Effort Part of National Initiative to Reduce Food Waste

The KHI News Service is an independent news agency, largely focused on health policy issues and state government news, based in Topeka.

Almost one-third of the food produced in America goes to waste. Using the motto, "Feed people, not landfills," the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Agriculture are working with partners across the country to change that. Their goal is to reduce food waste by half over the next 15 years. Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson recently traveled to Wichita to see how a Kansas grocery store chain is working with community organizations to help meet that goal.
