Roughly one third of all food produced goes to waste every year, and the United States alone throws out about half of its produce. That's bad news, and not just because the food waste is enough to solve world hunger. You see, it's not just the food that's wasted—it takes approximately 441 gallons of water to make just one pound of ground beef, and 302 gallons for a pound of tofu. When that food is thrown away, so is the water and all of the other resources that went in to making it. Here are some tips for maximizing your pantry and reducing your food waste.
