WTFCF’s Chip Carter Chats With U.S. News & World Report
On topic: Food Costs, Home Vs. Takeout
“Where The Food Comes From” Producer, Publisher and Host Chip Carter had a recent chat with Geoff Williams of U.S. News & World Report about rising food prices and whether or not these days, it’s cheaper to grab takeout or fast food or eat at home, in an article released this week.
It’s a classic question for any adult with a stomach and a wallet: Is fast food cheaper than cooking at home? And there is no easy answer.
“The answer depends entirely on how much you value your time, and how much you value your health, as well as your wallet,” says Chip Carter, the producer and host of a national TV show Where the Food Comes From.
“Your time is worth money, no doubt. So that has to factor into the equation. Poor health costs a lot too, so there’s the flipside of that,” Carter adds.
Still, you worry about clearing the plates, and we’ll try to clear up the mystery of whether fast food or cooking at home is cheaper.
