What do you see when you open your refrigerator? How many containers of your favorite foods have been sitting in there for the past week or so? Those leftovers you keep meaning to eat - until you must eventually throw them away.
Estimates from the U.S. Department of Agriculture suggest that over one-third (30-40 percent) of food goes uneaten through loss or waste. This adds up to approximately 133 billion pounds and $161 billion worth of food in 2010.
