    it´s cos people can´t cook, they don´t know how to shop realistically and there is this crazy thing that many people have about NEVER running out of food.

    It´s not just an american thing, though perhaps it may be more pronounced there.

    Some cities are starting to get programs where people attempt to make sure food isn't going to waste. Like getting food from grocery stores before it goes bad and giving to to soup kitchens, etc.

    Not only are we in a world where half are starving to death and the other half dying from excess (obesity, heart disease, etc), but the half dying from excess is still throwing food away while others are dying. I do my best to only buy what I need and use what I buy.
