John Oliver Digs Into America’s Food Waste Crisis
John Oliver went dumpster diving last night to expose America ‘s food waste problem. We ‘re a country obsessed with fruit aesthetics and arbitrary sell-by dates and because of that, each year we create enough food waste to fill 730 football stadiums.
Tons of misinformation and political backhandedness are also to blame for landfills of fresh chard and perfectly prime peaches discarded out of fear. Oliver offers good alternatives in this segment, and also the best raccoon impression I ‘ve seen a comedian do in ages. That alone makes this segment worth the watch.
