Growing up, I can vividly remember my parents stressing the importance of not wasting food. At every meal they insisted I clean my plate, no matter how unappetizing the night’s menu seemed. My parents insisted that it was wrong to waste food, especially when “there are children in Africa who don’t have any food to waste.” Other than images of malnourished African children, this always made me think of the homeless population of my own city. However, what rarely came to mind was how our country systematically wastes food on a large scale.
