Welcome to Food News.

Let's start with an issue that should worry us all ... the amount of food we waste when half the world's population is starving and a good portion of the rest are suffering from the effects of inflation.

Here's an article that will give us more food for thought!
It’s not exactly breaking news that humans waste a lot of our food, but a new study by the National Resources Defense Council puts a striking figure on the actual statistics, suggesting that we waste a whopping 30 and 50% of all food produced. With the average American discarding 33 lbs of food each month, MSNBC calculates that each person is responsible for throwing out an adult gorilla’s weight in food each year. That’s a lot of food.

If you have a story or advice that might help our readers, please let us know.
