WASHINGTON -- Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said America needs to stop wasting food, even if that means teaching people to cut back on the amount of food on their plates.
Speaking at the National Press Club on Monday, the former Iowa governor said long-term food insecurity "is a challenge, because we're going to have to increase food production -- I've seen anywhere from 50 to 70 percent in the next 35 years -- to meet a growing world population."
"But the first step, and the one way the USDA can provide help and assistance to meet this need, is to expand on the -- on the issue of food waste," Vilsack said. "A third of the food that we grow, raise and produce in this country is never consumed the way it was intended. It's wasted."

And clean up your room!
Wait till your father gets home!
True, I BBQ A LOT OF EXTRA food, but then I bag it all for the guests.
Well, H->! could certainly stand to lose some mass. The Moose too.
A growing world pop isn’t our problem.
Our needs are the only concerns we should have.
We owe the world outside our own borders absolutely nothing.
Tell that to Michelle Obama
“Wait till your father gets home!”
“Um, if you HAD a father!”
“We” do NOT have to feed a growing world population
Let the rest of the world feed itself.
Next they will be advising as to the number of squares we use per sitting.
Who the hell is we, Lindbergh?
mykroar to Ag secretary....MYOFB
I really hate this people.
Ok, lets stop making ethanol.
Get with the Globalist program you servile, American proles. There’s nothing special about you or your over-rated country. Get by on a bowl of rice and a fish head like everybody else. Who the hell do you think you are?
Hey Vilsack mind your own business. What I do with my food is none of yours.
I say we quit giving food to the poor. Eating well increases fertility and leads to more children living to maturity, which means more children living to maturity, times that by infinity we get a world of 14 Billion people with their hand out. People love their children, and that would be fine except for one thing, going back 4 to 10 generations, these people cannot feed themselves. QUIT REWARDING SLOTH AND LAZINESS, these people truly need to live or die by their own handiwork or lack of it. It is SOCIALISM not Capitalism that breeds failure, starvation and over-population.
A message to prepare us for the coming Marxist 5 year plans, falling production and the allocation of scarcity and misery that all such government bring.
