It’s What’s On The Inside That Counts
America is often referred to as the “land of excess.” Unfortunately, this rings true as we face a very real food waste problem. According to an organization fighting food insecurity, Feeding America, “Each year, 119 billion pounds of food is wasted in the United States. That equates to 130 billion meals and more than $408 billion in food thrown away each year. Shockingly, nearly 40% of all food in America is wasted.” This is a staggering amount, and it is clear that something needs to be done to minimize food waste.
