I would normally share with you all the fun stuff about food but today, I’m going to share a startling fact about food waste.
How many of you heard your mom say, ‘Do you know there are starving kids in Africa?” or find yourself saying to your kids?
Well that’s not that far from the truth then, and still, is not now. Famine in East Africa is still going on so it’s a shame that we have food waste here in rich country like America. And it’s startling to learn that 1/3 of foods produced in the world – that’s about 1.3 billion ton of food either gets lost or wasted.
