A few notes about food waste:
- Food waste comprises about a quarter of the waste we throw away, even more in restaurants and for other food businesses. 1) Furthermore, the USDA estimates that in the United States, 31 percent-or 133 billion pounds-of the 430 billion pounds of the available food supply at the retail and consumer levels in 2010 went uneaten.
- EPA estimated the environmental impacts of so much food wasted, and these impacts don’t even include the missed opportunities to feed people in need, provide food for animals, and recycle the remaining food.
