The Huntington Post recently featured an article about the case for eating garbage. While France has made grocery store food waste illegal, we have yet to catch up. Here are jarring facts:
The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that over a third of all food in the world goes to waste. A little more than half of that waste is happening “upstream” in production, post-harvest handling and storage, according to a recent FAO study. Forty six percent of the waste is happening “downstream”, during processing, distribution, and consumption.
Please read this important article today and rethink how much food we all just toss away. By the way, where exactly IS away when you’re tossing it, anyway?
