QUIZ: Do you know the shocking truth about food waste?
Wasting food is easy. It usually goes a little something like this: something catches your eye at the market, finds its way into your grocery basket, and then sits on your refrigerator shelf for a month beyond its expiration date. Or maybe, you make too much food and forget to eat the leftovers. We’ve all been there.
But when we zoom out from our kitchen pantries and look at the food industry as a whole, the food waste statistics are stunning. We’re talking more than a billion tons of food being wasted every year.
