Dana & Jayson - Best By: The San Diego Food Bank's Jim Floros

Tuesday, June 4th

​No, not Best Buy, the digital retailer, we're talking about expiration dates on food products. Americans throw away a ridiculous amount of food every year, and a lot of it has to do with what turns out to be relatively arbitrary expiration dates. During a tour of the San Diego Food Bank a few months back, Dana discovered a very handy chart that dispels some of the myths about expiration dates, so when Dana & Jayson learned that new guidelines might change the way food is labeled with a more accurate method, they knew the only person to talk about this was the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank CEO Jim Floros. This morning, Jim joined us in the Alt 949 studios to break it all down, and provide a little wisdom that never expires this morning on San Diego's Alternative.
