How Much Food Do We Waste?

A survey by the Department of Agriculture estimates 133-billion pounds of all food available, that's Billion with a 'B' goes uneaten. One third of that goes in the dumpster at grocery stores. Bruised fruit, past pull date, spoiled meat, but the other two-thirds? It gets tossed at home and in restaurants. And that comes from super sizing and ordering too much, and at home from simply cooking too much food. Leftovers get tossed before they get eaten. The annual amount that goes in the trash in the U-S? 290-pounds a year for every man, woman and child.
