Half the food in the last year was thrown out. One billion people are hungry. The next food revolution is about what you're not eating.

It's a crime considering the many who literally die of starvation in third world countries,the amount of food wasted in America.
Rejecting a fruit or vegatable as non edible simply because it grew defectively or didn't conform to a standard shape or size? Come on! It's supposed to be food,not a work of art.
And the whole 'sale by', 'use by', expires by' is totally confusing. Someone needs to come up with a better system.

thank you Carrie for the posting. Unfortunately so crops and food products have been been dumped, by countries in the past when they have been unable to sell them, rather than giving them to the poor and hungry. The excuse was always about the price- keeping prices high. I can understand that it costs to be shipped abroad to those suffering famine.Bubut what is the excuse when thousands of e.g. apricots or other products are going to be dumped, why the government does not facilitate NGOS and other charity organizations to step in to claim these products and distribute them to the needy in their own country.

There is the food that each one of us toss because of those green fuzzies. Yet how muc is wasted just ebcause of poor factory farming processes and such.

Truly sad.

there is no need for so much to be wasted. especially when solutions are so simple.
