Did you know that in the US, 30%-40% of food is wasted every year? That weighs in at about 240 pounds of food per person every year.

… IS IT EXPENSIVE? Not really. The houses up here are bigger than in, say, Shaw, so there are more rooms to rent, and I think people think that CoHi is far away from stuff and thus inconvenient.
