Hari Pulapaka, PhD

• Edible Orlando published on Feb. 13 the essay, “Trimming Food Cost with Creativity Can Help People, Profits, and the Planet” by Hari Pulapaka, PhD, associate professor of Mathematics and a professional chef. “Food insecurity and hunger can be significantly alleviated by reducing food waste and re-channeling excess food to individuals in need who cannot afford or lack access to sufficient and nutritious food,” Pulapaka wrote. “So, why hasn’t this happened already? The fear of lawsuits, lack of systems including distribution logistics, unawareness and sometimes, old-fashioned apathy is to blame.”
