Food Waste

Food gets lost or wasted all along the farm-to-fork supply

chain. Food is lost on farms, during harvesting, processing,

and storage. It’s wasted in retail stores, school cafeterias, and

in homes. One-third of it is lost or wasted, from the time it is

produced until it is consumed. What impact does this have on

climate change? Why do we waste so much food? Where in the

food supply chain is food lost or wasted?
