    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!

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Grocery Store Waste

    In many regions, grocery stores are not allowed to keep prepared foods, in open display, till the next day's sale. they will over produce, to satisfy the variety of desires of the customers, then throw away the remainder at the end of the day. a few stores will repackage meats...

    I hate how people eat apples

    and think it has a "core" lol, it does not just eat it to where you think the core is, break it in half and remove the seeds and the apple is 100% consumed. Same for a kiwi people waste the skin which is actually good for your skin.

    Today I dropped a full bowl of goulash on the

    floor. In that moment you could see my heart break. I was so excited to eat it, but no that full bowl got wasted! :'( I did get another bowl of it, but I would have been able to have two servings if I didn't drop it on the floor... So devastating.

    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...

    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..

    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...
