Americans waste more than 40 percent of the food we produce for consumption. That comes at an annual cost of more than $100 billion. At the same time, food prices and the number of Americans without enough to eat continues to rise.
I feel strongly about food waste when many do not have enough to eat. There are so many people/children that go hungry everyday. There are so many places like Dunkin Donuts that simply throw out leftover food. There is no reason why they could not donate it to local food pantries or homeless shelters, like the supermarkets do. Any edible food could help someone from going hungry. Lets allow food pantries or shelters to get this food rather than it going to the landfill.
