are running in d.c. if the studies went the way they were supposed to and you got it funded, it would be another ten years before it came over to this side of georgetown, but the construction would start much sooner than that. a final presentation is expected come fall. this could be a big one to watch. >> all right. we will be watching. adam tuss, thanks so much. a food festival just wrapped up in downtown washington and 5,000 people enjoyed a free lunch. the chefs prepared the meals using so-called ugly produce. that's the not so perfect looking fruits and veggies that restaurants and consumers usually throw away. this is video yesterday of the chefs preparing the food. about 1/3 of the food that's produced around the world unnecessarily ends up in the trash. actress robin wright is weighing in on the equal
