What is food waste?
Basically, it's what happens when food that is usually totally fine gets thrown away, because it's misshapen, leftover, not stored properly, or restaurants and grocery stores don't take the time to donate it.
Why should you care?
Because nearly 40% of the food produced in this country ends up in the trash, and 50 million households per year don't have enough to eat. #notokay.

This John Oliver Food Waste episode from Last Week Tonight is a sharable and hilarious way to educate yourself.
