Wasting Away: Why the Single Most Important Food Decision You Make May Be What You Don't Eat
One third of all the food produced in the world today is wasted, enough to feed 3 billion people—a shocking number in a world full of hunger and volatile food prices. In the United States alone, an estimated 40 percent of all the food produced is wasted at the retail and consumer levels. Both consumers and policymakers are taking notice. The White House has committed to reducing food waste on a national level by 50 percent by 2030.
