40% of food grown in the U.S. is thrown away — here’s a solution | Patrick Bultema | TEDxMileHigh

You’ve heard this astounding statistic before – so why is so much food thrown away? In this eye-opening talk, industry leader Patrick Bultema follows the food from farm to grocery store to discover why the U.S. food system is so wasteful — and what to do about it. Patrick Bultema has served as CEO, Founder, and Executive Chairman of numerous companies, including FoodMaven, a Colorado-based company and online marketplace for surplus food from the grocery industry that would otherwise end up in landfills. With a Master of Divinity from Princeton, he values a stewardship approach to our planet and its inhabitants. Patrick and his wife are the proud parents of seven children, three of whom were adopted from China. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
