In the U.S. alone, food is lost or wasted as much as 40 percent of the time throughout the food chain, from farm to fork to disposal, each year. That’s over 1,400 calories per person, per day, wasted.

Every year in the US, 40% of the food supply goes to waste. And that’s just the food that Americans toss in the trash. A whopping 96 billion pounds of food is wasted each year, and then ends up in landfills where it rots and emits methane, a harmful greenhouse gas.

In the US, 40% of all food is wasted. It is estimated that the average American household throws away $2,000 worth of food every year. This is a staggering amount of money to be throwing away, especially when so many people are struggling to put food on the table.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that 40% of the food produced in the United States goes uneaten. That’s 133 billion pounds and worth about $161 billion dollars. That’s a lot of food, and it’s probably more than you think.
