Turning Food Past Its Sell-By Date into Healthy, Low-Cost Meals

Doug Rauch, former president of Trader Joe’s, talks about food insecurity, food waste, and his new project, The Daily Table. Rauch plans to open a restaurant/grocery store that will sell prepared food, fruits and vegetables that are past their sell-by dates yet are still fresh and safe to eat. He wants to use some of the grocery industry’s estimated $47 million of wasted food each year to help feed low-income communities.
