The Natural Resources Defense Counsel released a report that is shocking. Approximately forty percent of the food produced in the United States goes to waste and eventually ends up in landfills.

While we all remember our parents reminding us that people in other countries don’t have the luxury of the food that we had on our plates, it is a shameful situation to realize such a high percentage simply rots away. There is a lot of work, energy and resources that are devoted to the production of the food in America and the waste equates to approximately $390 of waste, per person, in the U.S. Much of this waste is attributed to our general attitude of the lack of preference for any food that isn’t perfect in shape, color, texture or general appearance.
