Winston Chiu is the Culinary Director of Rethink Food NYC, a nonprofit organization working to recover nutritious excess food to provide low or no-cost meals to New York City families in need.

Winston graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education and started Bonbite Catering, a globally inspired, locally-sourced catering firm. He later became a partner at Little Tong Noodle Shop, specializing in mixian noodles from China’s Yunnan Province. He’s also spent countless hours developing the culinary arts curriculum for the Brooklyn S.T.E.A.M. Center, an innovative business-focused public school.

In this podcast episode, Winston sheds light on the relationship between food waste, marketing, and consumer perceptions of food; how we can implement and scale the solution of connecting food waste from restaurants and supermarkets, to those in need who currently live with food insecurity; and more.
