You know that stalk of celery that’s gone limp in your crisper? The lettuce or beets or meat you kept meaning to eat? Now imagine all the limp celery in all the fridges across the country. About one-third of the world’s food is lost or wasted before it can be consumed, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. That’s not just food going to waste. The land, labor, water and energy used to grow, transport and prepare that food is wasted, too. As the National Resources Defense Council puts it: “Wasting food wastes everything.”
