I think that food waste is a big problem! How do we get the food from places that have too much to places that have too little? On a personal level, I think that we need more education on how to waste less food. It makes me sick sometimes to see how much food gets thrown out in this country.DB
Yes, although I think we need to also admit that a certain amount of food waste is normal and is to be expected. Learning how not to waste food starts with childhood, because, the way my husband and I were raised, we waste very little food at our house. Even with the garden produce, things can be dried after all other options are exhausted. We have leftovers a lot, too. But when you look at countries out of the U.S. and developed nations other things come into play like storage and refrigeration and distribution. Seafood is a whole 'nother subject and I'd like to see it addressed sooner rather than later.
