waste not want not

The waiting of food is a significant problem in the west and we typically throw out between 25 to 50% of our grocery purchases. Much is this food is still good and restaurants and grocery stores are just as guilty as we are in seeing some of it end up in dumpsters.

I live alone and so my food purchases tend to be small. Hence I typically consume virtually everything I buy. However the larger the family, the more the likelihood that things will be thrown out.

Our society is becoming increasingly aware of this important issue especially since there are people doing without enough food. If we all do our part to be less wasteful we will be contributing to making things better for everyone.
