People Waste Nearly a Pound of Food Daily

University of Vermont

Americans waste nearly a pound of food per person each day, but the exact amount of food we trash differs by how healthy your diet is, new research finds. Annually, food waste corresponds with the use of 30M acres of land (7% of total US cropland) and 4.2 trillion gallons of water. Surprisingly, higher quality diets were associated with higher levels of food waste.
