The meat from some of the animal’s ends up going to charity." +++++

..."The campaign, called No Name Naturally Imperfect, offers aesthetically displeasing apples and potatoes at a discount of up to 30 cents in select Loblaws-owned stores in Ontario and Quebec. “We often focus too much on the look of produce rather than the taste,” said Ian Gordon, senior vice president, Loblaw Brands, Loblaw Companies Limited, in a press statement. “Once you peel or cut an apple you can’t tell it once had a blemish or was misshapen.”

Reducing food waste takes more than finishing your plate

Reducing food waste takes more than finishing your plate | Redistributing wasted food.. | Scoop.it
Wasting less where food is produced is not only good for the planet, but it also helps reduce poverty -- the best way to get at hunger.
Norma R. Burnson's insight:

Sustainable Food for the Globe. Redusing wasted Food.

...."When we talk about food waste in richer countries, we are mostly talking about consumer waste — reducing that is important for cutting the food gap. But when we talk about food waste in poorer countries we are talking about losses (the yellow and red bars on the graph above) that take money out of farmers’ pockets. And there, the potential in reducing waste is even greater: By enriching small farmers, it would reduce poverty — which is the ultimate goal, and the root cause of hunger." +++++

Sustainable Food for the Globe.  Rescueing Wasted Food.  This situation has become truly perplexing.  If we have enough food today to feed everyone on the planet, why do we throw that food away? 

..."More than 800 million people in the world are starving, yet it doesn’t have to be that way. At the present time, we grow enough food to feed not only everyone on earth, but 3 billion additional people, too. The fact that so much food is wasted and not shared with those who need it is unconscionable." +++++

Sustainable Food for the Globe.  Redistributing Wasted Food.  Hello, is anybody out there?  This story goes on and on, repeated daily.  What the heck are we doing to provide solutions? ..."Careful readers may wonder: What's the difference between food loss and food waste? Waste occurs toward the back end of the food chain, at the retail and consumer level. In general, the richer the nation, the higher its per capita rate of waste. Loss, on the other hand, mostly occurs at the front of the food chain—during production, postharvest, and processing—and it's far less prevalent in industrialized nations than in the developing world, which tends to lack the infrastructure to deliver all of its food, in decent shape, to consumers eager to eat it." +++++
