When I heard that 40% of the food grown in this country goes to waste, I almost fell over. Forty percent?! That’s nearly half of our entire food supply.
This trailer from the documentary “Just Eat It” explains a bit more:
I’ve been thinking: What if we all just bought less food – but higher quality food – and made better use of it? I bet many of us could then afford to buy more organic food, which would benefit our families, farmers, farm workers, farmland, animals and the environment.
Sounds easy, right?
