The Problem of Food Waste
The NRDC estimates that up to 40% of the food produced in America goes uneaten. In this country alone, food loss costs billions of dollars annually. Yet 1 in 8 Americans struggle to put food on the table. There is a huge disconnect here, while millions of tons of edible food is finding it’s way into landfills while our food insecure populations continue to grow. Therefore, if we are not part of the solution, we are contributing to the problem.
