Yes, there have been numerous efforts of late to educate people about the volume of food we waste along with the associated harms. Yes, we have more and more programs coming on line to help us reduce food waste issues. Yes, smart people and organizations across the Pacific Northwest are turning food waste into useful fuels. But what can chefs and foodservice operators do in their own commercial kitchens?
