Framing Cuisine with Food Loss and Waste as a Combined Nutrition Public Health Priority and Climate Change Mitigation Action

This article proposes that fortifying honored traditional recipes with natural foods in tandem with preventing food loss and waste adds a new dimension to sustainable food management—nutrient recovery and bioavailability—while reducing the global prevalence of anemia and other diet-induced maladies. Using the complementarity of iron and Vitamin C as an example, this paper demonstrates that we can recover bioavailable nutrients to ensure recovery is efficient.

Authors Jonathan Deutsch, PhD, professor in the Department of Food and Hospitality Management, Thomas O'Donnell, PhD, Department of Engagements for the Common Good, Cabrini University, and Solomon Katz, PhD, Emeritus, Department of Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania, show by example that returning food loss and waste into a healthy food environment can meet the daily and monthly needs of iron-deficiency in substantial portions of the populations with significant need and in all countries. Further, maximizing the availability of key nutrients, like iron, will reduce the stress of animal husbandry on the environment, reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and thereby, reduce agriculture impacts to climate change and global warming.

Considering the quality, quantity, and convenience of food recovery, from farm—and beyond fork—to gut, is key for global policy development in nutrition public health and actions that are ready to implement today.

Culinary Scientists Collaborating with City Health Department and Manufacturers to Improve Public Health: A Case from Philadelphia’s Sodium Reduction in Communities Program

Philadelphia has high rates of chronic disease, including hypertension and diabetes, which can be mitigated through reduction of dietary sodium intake. To address this, the City of Philadelphia instituted nutrition standards to reduce sodium in meals served by city departments. Noting some compliant foods were hard to find, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) partnered with the Drexel Food Lab (DFL) to reformulate popular foods to contain less sodium.

This paper details the process of sodium reduction in a Philadelphia staple, the hoagie roll, and shares the success of its implementation in over 1.6 million rolls purchased annually by the public school system.
