Waste Not, Want Not

According to Jonathan Bloom, Americans waste over 40 percent of the food we produce for consumption every year. Aside from the fact that this seems unacceptable when so many go hungry, it also adds up to a cost of more than $100 billion every year.

Wasted Food is Jonathan's blog and he says it's not just a blog but also a call to action. After working at a homeless shelter that rescues unused food from restaurants and supermarkets, he began researching the topic and is writing a book on wasted food in America.

check out this great blog that's packed with lots of information about what you can do to prevent food waste both in and out of the home.
