It's Earth Day, and this year msnbc and NBCUniversal are exploring the surprising truth about wasted food. Forty percent of edible food in the United States gets thrown away. This means financial waste, water waste and energy waste. There are small steps you can take at home to make big changes and help turn this waste around. Msnbc food correspondent and chef Tom Colicchio is taking on the #NoFoodWasted challenge and wants you to join him. Today at 1 p.m. ET join Tom for an Earth Day Twitter chat. He's ready to answer your questions about what we can do to cut down on food waste.
And don't miss msnbc's premiere of "Just Eat It" Wednesday, April 22 at 10 p.m. ET to see the story of a young couple who committed to living only on discarded food for six months and hear the incredible lessons they learned.
