Kathryn: When the kids were younger, Rosie did a stint as lunch volunteer
at the local elementary school. She still talks about it: “The WASTE! You
can’t IMAGINE!! Whole trays of food thrown out–the kids barely touch it!
Cartons of milk, unopened, thrown out. We threw out more than they ate…”
It made a powerful impression on Rosie. (Who grew up in China, in a family
that generated one small shopping-bag’s worth of garbage per month.)
