Trump administration wants to make food waste great again

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have launched a new initiative called "Winning on Reducing Food Waste." The respective heads of each agency signed a joint formal agreement to tackle the issue on Oct. 18.
