Why is it Important?
Food waste is estimated at 30-40% of the food supply, which translates to 133 billion pounds and $161BN worth of food loss in 2010. (Source: USDA, OCE)
More food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in our everyday trash, about 21% of the waste stream. Reducing food waste will help the US address climate change, as 20% of total US methane emissions comes from landfills.
On a local level, 30% of what goes into Dallas landfills is compostable kitchen and yard waste. (Source: City of Dallas) (Source: EPA)
