Food waste is perhaps one of the biggest problems in the world that people are not talking about. You may not realize it, but statistics show the average American throws away over 20 pounds of food each month. With about 15 million children living in food insecure households nationwide, new programs are now being adopted in communities across the country to make sure leftovers end up on dinner plates – and not in landfills. New York City is no exception. Our partners at Metrofocus take a look at this problem with help from The Huffington Post, which recently launched a campaign called “Reclaim” to cut down on food waste.
