40% of America's food goes to waste. Now, technology is able to build apps and web platforms to put the food to good use.

A subsidiary of DuPont is working on a heart-healthy soybean and Monsanto is developing an omega-3 enriched soybean. To combat malnutrition, researchers are working to produce a variety of cassava (a staple crop in Africa) that will provide more of the nutrients necessary in a balanced diet. Startup like Modern Meadow are on a mission to end slaughter houses save cows and help reduce carbon emissions by creating meatless meat. And, data scientist of Hampton Creek Foods are hoping to disrupt the global egg industry by actividata scientists are actively weeding out billions of proteins from hundreds of thousands of plants that is equivalent equivalent of a chicken's egg.
Agriculture already consumes a large percentage of the earth's land surface and is destroying habitat, using up freshwater, polluting rivers oceans, and emitting greenhouse gases more extensively than almost any other human activity. Scientific American
To counter this, we have come up with innovative places to grow food, with the aid of new Hydroponic technology. In London, a hydroponic farm was built in abandoned underground tunnels that were once air-raid shelters, so that local restaurants and stores can have fresh produce and herbs. Closer to home in Chicago, Green Sense Farms, is a one-million cubic foot of indoor growing space that is experimenting with this technology. This technology is growing in popularity because, now food can be grown without soil – very different from the 5000 year old way of doing business.
