9780738215280: American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It)

Grocery prices and the forsaken foods at the back of your fridge 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.

About the Author:

Jonathan Bloom is a journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Boston Globe. He lives with his wife and son in Durham, North Carolina. Visit: WastedFood.com

 

Review:

TheAtlantic.com“Rather than being yet another industrial food system downer of a book, this is a good read that somehow inspires rather than defeats...Bloom’s first-person reportage draws you in and will have you promising to always bring Tupperware from home when you go out to eat.”
TheDailyGreen.com,
“Bloom gives us the trash stats, but he also helps come up with everyday solutions you can put into action today.” VegNews, February 2011“An eye-opening read.”

Choice, April 2011
“Bloom’s book is worth consideration, not only because of his focus on the American food waste problem, but also because of his evident desire to do something about it. Recommended.”

Gastronomica, Fall 2011
“With a journalist’s attention to research and observation, and a do-gooder’s sense of urgency, he tackles [food waste] from different perspectives, examining links along our national food chain, including farms, supermarkets, restaurants, and individual kitchens.”

SergeTheConcierge.com, 8/23/11“Worth the investment both for your wallet and for the planet.” 

Kirkus Reviews (starred review), 8/15/10
“An eye-opening account of what used to be considered a sin—the willful waste of perfectly edible food...Bloom is full of condemnation without being unduly scolding...Refreshingly, Bloom offers solutions as well as jeremiads, and not a minute too soon—an urgent, necessary book.”

Booklist, 10/1/10“Journalist Bloom documents specifics about the nature of wasted food in the twenty-first century and calls into question both the economic efficiency and the morality of such profligacy.” Publishers Weekly, 9/27 “Journalist Bloom follows the trajectory of America’s food from gathering to garbage bin in this compelling and finely reported study, examining why roughly half of our harvest ends up in landfills or rots in the field...Bloom’s most interesting point is psychological: we have trained ourselves to regard food as a symbol of American plenty that should be available at all seasons and times, and in dizzying quantities...[He] makes smart suggestions on becoming individually and collectively more food conscious.”

Huffington Post, 11/9/10
“Timely, terrific new book.”

Tucson Citizen, 11/23/10
“This book could change your life.”
