Does this sound like you? You are environmentally conscience and know that food waste is the #1 contributor to climate change, but it seems no matter how hard you try, there is always something that gets forgotten about or ignored in your cupboards or refrigerator.
Well, not anymore!
Don't worry, that scenario happens to all of us, but it doesn't have too. Join Hudson Valley EATS and special guest, Rachael Jackson, journalist and founder of Eat or Toss, on February 24th, and stress no more about the uncertainty of whether a food can still be eaten or needs to be tossed because it could make you sick.
Something might not look so pretty but let's learn to love our ugly. In this fun, interactive presentation, Rachael is going to use science to demystify commonly asked questions about as whether you should "Eat or Toss".
