A small fraction of the food that is wasted in the United States could feed all of those who go hungry. Watch the video below, and you’ll find out just what percentage that is. I’m telling you, you’re not going to believe it.

You’re also not going to believe the answer to this question. In terms of dollars, where is the most food wasted — in the home, in the retail store, or on the farm?

This video from GOODMagazine spells it out when it comes to food waste in this country.

If you’ve got a refrigerator full of leftovers from Thanksgiving, don’t let them go to waste. I’ve got Thanksgiving leftover ideas for the turkey and the trimmings.


I want to think Jonathan from Wasted Food for bringing this video to my attention.
