A seasoned chef, Ph.D. in food studies, culinary educator, program administrator, research chef, sustainability advocate, and food waste warrior – Chef Jonathan Deutsch is on a mission to help us all see the big picture. The fragile food supply chain in America is broken and our collective malaise concerning food waste is a crisis that must be addressed. According to a United Nations study – nearly 1/3 of all the food produced for human consumption is wasted. With an alarming percentage of the world’s population experiencing food insecurity or worse – this is simply unacceptable. Carry this through the issues of over-packaging and transportation energy costs associated with the food supply chain and it is easy to see why Chef Deutsch and many others are raising the red flag about a needed sustainability attitude. Join CAFÉ Talks podcast as we learn more about what Chef Deutsch is working on at Drexel University and how we all might help to make a difference for our industry, for our country, and for the world. As educators we can make that difference through one student at a time.
