Focusing on Food Waste
This New York Times article from May 18, 2008 regarding food waste is relevant now more than ever. A 1995 Federal study determined that 96.5 BILLION pounds of food was wasted - food discarded in our homes, cafeterias, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. That does not include food processing losses on farms, by processors, or wholesalers.
