KIRKLAND, Wash. — A grocery store is resolving to waste less food in 2014 and made a mighty investment to keep that New Year's resolution.

WISErg CEO Larry LeSueur said he and co-founder Jose Lugo are both dedicated to renewable energy and were trying to find a way to put value in the billions of dollars’ worth of food that is wasted every year. They came up with the Harvester.

Grocery stores and other food producers buy the machine and use it for wasted food that is not eligible for a food bank.
