We waste 1.3 billion tons of food worldwide each year (yikes!). The No Food Wasted app could help us fix that.
One-third of the food produced worldwide (that's almost 1.3 billion tons) is wasted every year.
In the U.S., the United Nations Environment Programme estimates that each person wastes more than 20 pounds of food per month, which is 30-40% of our food supply. Yikes.
And, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the family breakdown looks bad, too: an average family of four leaves more than 2 million calories (nearly $1,500 worth of food) uneaten each year. Double yikes.
