Outlaw alcohol in gas and problem solved. We waste more food for fuel than several countries eat.

Maybe they need an “Oil for Food” program.

Several of my friends own restaurants. We've discussed the food waste problem. Most of the waste can be traced to the local and county health regulations, where unused fresh food must be discarded. Also, the grocery store has to throw out bread that has gone beyond it's sell-by date. Predicting demand can be so difficult for everyone, to know how much to "stock up."

Let's see if the liberals figure this out, and come up with a balance between reducing food waste and no-sparrow-shall-fall safety.

If someone would just check the White House garbage cans they would find enough extra food to feed a 3rd world country I’m sure.

Wasted food is compost.

I doesn't leave the biosphere forever - you can sequester food waste for a while, but it'll be back.

Review the carbon and nitrogen cycles.

The best thing to do is eliminate the waste that is the U.N.

First thing to do is to get rid of the national edicts on school cafeteria lunches. I’d guess that 95% of all food that hits the trays hits the trash can. They are feeding the children inedible gargbage (wheat bread instead of white etc) that the kids just won’t eat. Most of the parents from my daughter’s school note that their kids come home starving. and that more and more are sending a lunch with their child as the school lunches are trash.

Second thing to do is stop putting food in fuel. God made so called fossil fuels for gasoline and corn for food. it’s important to not get them mixed up.

Transportation of food is really the issue here. The USA alone can produce eough to feed the entire world. we just can’t get it there and make any money doing it.

Amazing how freedom produces more food. Rhodesia, when it was mostly capitalist, was the breadbasket of Africa. Now that it’s gone socialist, Rhodesians are starving.

I knew the idea of “food inequality” would come up when the Moocher started her “obesity” campaign.

“White folks greed leaves a world in need” “ a cruise ship waste more food in a day than a Haitian see’s in a lifetime”.

There will be a big push for “developed countries” that waste all that food to pay a UN Food Tax in the form of a certain amount of the food they produce going to the UN to distribute to undeveloped countries.
