Up to 40 percent of food in the United States today goes uneaten. With it, we throw away more than $ 160 billion and huge quantities of natural resources. But while wasted food rots in landfills and emits greenhouse gases, millions of Americans face hunger and global demand for food continues to rise. From farming and distribution to restaurants and homes, experts say there are opportunities for improvement at every level of the food supply chain. For this month’s Environmental Outlook: the causes and consequences of food waste, and how to change our path.
