    Sorry No Doggy Bag

    I eat everything on my plate either when I go out to eat or at home. I can not imagine wasting half my plate or throwing away fruit that has the slightest blemish. With all the starving people in this world, I feel thankful for all the food on my plate. If we buy what we...

    I Am Poor And Don't Get Lots Of Food....

    I used to not care about food that was wasted when I was living with my parents. There, we were fed tons of food.Now that I can hardly afford food and there is not too much food in food banks, I hate to waste any food. I know what it's like to be hungry. This is where I come into...

    Prodigeous Amounts

    I'm not sure that first word is spelled correct, but I'm not breaking out my dictionary. I'm usually a pretty good speller, but I do make mistakes. Anyway, I feel that people in this country (The USA) waste huge amounts of food, while other people in this country and others go...

    Yes

      I definitely hate wasting food.  Sometimes it does happen but I try so hard not to waste any as it's unfair.  There is so many poor people out there who'd only wish they would have what some has and cannot afford or have a decent meal.

    I'd Rather Not Waste Food.

    I really don't like wasting food.. I used to waste a lot though. I used to through away so much. Like when I was in school I used to throw away the lunch I had nearly everyday and starve myself because I didn't want to eat. I try not to throw anything away now though..

    Waste Food

    I really do like to see food go to waste. There was a time when I lived on the streets and sold blood plasma every 3 days to be able to eat. Far too many people go hungry in America. There is too much charities sending food out of the country instead of feeding the hungry and...

    The Beginning Of It All

    Maybe it's just me- but it seems the culture of wasting food in America is something that's deeply ingrained. I notice it the most in stories- be it in books, movies, songs, theaters... How the characters eat half or sometimes none of their food and then lightly "toss away the...

    Fast Food Is The Worst!

    If they are following the procedure for sit times, then the amount of food wasted at any given burger joint in a day is mind numbing!

    Not When So Many Are Starving

    I never buy more than I think I will use, and I am not afraid to eat leftovers. With so many people in the world starving, I would feel terrible if I wasted food.
