A brief item in the AARP magazine about food expiration dates and ways to extend them and when we should also not pitch out the food noted that ….every year, 40% of all food in the USA goes uneaten. A typical 4 person household discards roughly $1,500 of food a year. It’s not just $$ that are wasted but the resources to produce the food and the CO2 involved … 3.5 billion metric tons. It seems that we have forgotten the old adage, waste not want not. As the Food Lion “Lion” would say, that’s just my 2 cents.
