5. Fast Food is one of the worst offenders.

 

.
.

When I worked at McDonalds back in the 80's, they were discarding 50 pounds of french fries alone in a 12 hour shift.

Burgers, fish meals, salads, etc., once over the time limit for freshness, - into the garbage.

100's of pounds of food thrown away from one store, EACH DAY!

McD's had 1250 stores then. Many more than that now.

Add in all the other fast food places in North America,

WE ARE THROWING TONS OF FOOD AWAY EVERY DAY!

While others starve across the Globe.

Something is wrong with us;

ya think??
