Drop by any time between 3 and 3:50 p.m. to chat with members of the DC Food Recovery Working Group to learn about smart ways to reduce your food waste, sample dishes made with food that is often discarded, and get recipe ideas.

You’ll find out how to properly store food in your fridge to maximize freshness and shelf life with an interactive demo from the Arlington Food Assistance Center; participate in a quiz with EatOrToss blogger Rachael Jackson in which you will judge if blemished, bruised, or sprouted produce is safe to eat and learn how you can make accurate judgments in the future; and learn and taste how you can make great dishes from ingredients you may be throwing away.
