    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. How would you rather use this money?

    Annika Kapani 4/01/2021 1:14 PM
    I would rather spend it on local small businesses to buy food to minimize waste, or use it to donate to a reliable non-profit
