These Inedible Food Scraps Are Perfect for Composting

The zero-waste food movement is gaining momentum, and it couldn’t happen soon enough. After all, approximately 30 to 40 percent of the food supply is wasted in the U.S., according to the FDA estimations, meaning it’s thrown away, spoils, or otherwise fails to make its way into mouths and bellies.

Food and craft beer in South Florida is not a new combination. Brewpubs like Big Bear in Coral Springs and Hollywood Brewing on the city’s boardwalk have long served food alongside their suds.
