When's the last time you threw out food? 

Most of us do it all the time, wasting an average of $120 worth of groceries every month. On a larger scale, we waste about one-third of the food produced each year, or about 1.3 billion tons of food. We're using up valuable resources like water and farmland and increasing greenhouse gas emissions to make food that no one is eating. At the same time, 1 in 7 Americans doesn't have regular access to food.
