Food waste and the up-cycled FruitCycle

BY RIKE WOLF
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 05, 2014

 Rike Wolf, founder of the Food Rescue Initiative Townsville talks about food waste and the up-cycled FruitCycle, making tasty rescue smoothies. One third of the world's food, in rich developed countries, unfortunately is thrown out. Rike and her team are working to save all the food that is perfectly good for consumption, and donating it to those in need. To raise awareness, Rika has built a bike that can blend smoothies, which will hopefully encourage others to think before they throw out any types of food.
