Food waste is a matter of life and death.
Wasting food does not directly cause members of our family to die. But, make no mistake, it is a contributing factor.
We daily waste enough food to keep entire families alive. And the saddest part of that is we never even give it a thought.
Wasting food in a world of hunger is one more sign of our lack of community and our lack of caring for one another.
One step toward ending hunger in our lifetime is to be more mindful of our wasteful patterns of consumption. We all need to waste less food.
