(article, Culinate staff)

Although the statistics are based on a study that's more than 10 years old, they still stagger the mind: Americans waste approximately 27 percent of all the food we produce, according to an article yesterday in the New York Times. That's roughly a pound per day per American. Hard to imagine? Truly vivid is the photograph that goes with the story. Bonus: Quotes by Jon Bloom, who wrote on food waste for Culinate.
