Of the estimated 133 billion pounds of food that goes to waste every year, much of it is perfectly edible and nutritious.  Wasting food also means wasted water. The impact on the environment continues when food waste goes to landfills where it produces methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times worse than carbon dioxide.

This is an arena where doing the wrong thing just makes no sense at all. We can learn that eating the things we waste can save tremendous amounts of money. It can feed those around us who go hungry. It can make a dent in climate change. And it can taste awesome.
