The winner chosen at random is: Annie Lee who wrote:
The obviously not-edible parts (molded, hard stem of certain veggies, super wilted or dried) get composted. Everything else that looks a bit sad is stir-fried, baked, or turned into soup. The super fresh veggies are usually eaten raw in salads.

Congratulations Annie Lee!
