How local food and beverage
pros are tackling the restaurant
food waste problem.
ESTAURANTS OPERATE ON thin margins, so it's
no wonder that chefs find thrifty and creative ways to
maximize ingredients in order to reduce costs and waste.
Still, restaurant food waste is a problem. Results from a
2014 study by the Food Waste Reduction Alliance revealed
that nearly 85% of unused food in American restaurants
ends up being thrown away.
Here in Roanoke, independent food business owners
have made concerted efforts to reduce food waste and their
restaurant's footprint, particularly as takeout operations
have increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From
chefs to caterers, bartenders to baristas, local hospitality
pros share how they're tackling the restaurant waste
problem plus tips for cooking smarter with scraps at home.
