I feel lack of money helps stop most food waste problems......which is a environmental positive.

leftovers are usually eaten the next day.
i guess don't overcook for food to be dumped.

Very infrequently. With all the critters out here to feed, almost zero goes to waste

It is terrible to waste food when there are so many hungry people in the world.

Rarely-all leftovers are either eaten the next day or shared with the kitty gang+other critters.

If I'm speaking for myself, it's sometimes, for my family, it's a lot. I don't know who the culprit is, but someone is incredibly wasteful! I've talked with them about a compost pile for natural scraps, but they argue that it would attract animals.

Any advice on that?
