Not only do we eat a lot of disgusting food, we also waste a lot of disgusting food. Like, a LOT. Yay America!
I do not mean to imply that Cap'n Crunch is disgusting; I know very little about the Cap'n's personal habits. (via YouTube)
Hello, America. You do not need me or John Oliver to tell you how f*cked our country's relationship with food often is, but maybe you do need someone to tell you exactly how much food we waste: 40%. An estimated 40% of all the food produced in our country ends up in the trash. This is in the same country where 41.9 million people are "food insecure," which is a delicate way of saying, "HOLY SHIT MILLIONS OF AMERICANS CAN'T GET ENOUGH TO EAT."
