Watch our Earth Day special, Waste Not: Sustainable Living in NYC. The special tackles issues such as providing fresh food for communities via rooftop gardening, combating food waste via dumpster diving and donations of leftover foods from restaurants to provide for the hungry. Waste Not airs Friday, April 22 at 8:30PM on MNN1 (TWC 34 & 1995, RCN 82, FiOS 33) or MNN HD: http://bit.ly/MNNHDnew

The Hell’s Kitchen Farm Project is an urban rooftop garden that serves fresh produce to food pantries and low-income families and members of the community suffering from food insecurities. For more information, visit hkfp.org.

Tristram Stuart, author of Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal, comments on the amount of food that goes to waste and the amount of people that go hungry globally, and how the food system is designed to make money, not feed the world. He also goes on to speak on how everyday farmers are abused by capitalism. For more information: visit tristramstuart.co.uk or feedbackglobal.org.

A group of free-gans who obtain sustenance through dumpster “food rescues” say the movement is about community-building in urban areas. For more information, visit freegan.info.

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a non-profit organization founded by Robert Lee that strives to save leftover food from restaurants to give to those in need. Volunteers work to achieve their goal of ending hunger. For more information, visit: rescuingleftovercuisine.org.
