    Yes... no curbside pickup
  • Reflection Question
    Food Zero-waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

      Do you mean because you don't get curbside pick-up for your compost?
