Sucheta commented on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle of "FOOD WASTE"

There are many ways to reduce, recycle, and recover food waste in school cafeterias. By implementing these ideas, schools play a vital role in scaling back the amount of food taking up precious landfill space. More importantly, if a school uses food waste as a learning opportunity, it instills better habits in our young people and produces more civic-minded, community-conscious adults.

Sucheta commented on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle of "FOOD WASTE"

Food loss and waste occurs at points throughout the food supply chain – from the field through to household level – and occurs across the global socioeconomic spectrum. Although the food lost and wasted results from very different circumstances in say, the US and Sub-Saharan Africa (see Box B), it is interesting to note that aggregate levels of food lost or wasted is similar in these regions – around 40% – although patterns of waste and loss vary considerably.
