On average each American
throws away 1.3 pounds of
food every day.

I should repent in America to ban the "Eat as much as you can" policy due to the fact that most of the waste is organic.

There are grocery rescue groups that take food that would be thrown away by the stores and provide it to shelters, low income housing food pantries, rehab centers, etc. These are awesome groups that are doing great work. But a lot of waste is at the consumer level of the system. People need to revisit how they are dealing with food. I shop for fresh food daily so I have very little waste.

I guess I am not the average American, because I waste very little food, What I do throw away is not useable, mostly leftovers that have been in the fridge too long, or produce I forgot about.

By the way, I heard about the new Chinese policy, which says that everyone who has not finished eating in a restaurant should pay for the half-eaten food. This has been implemented throughout the country. I read this in this essay https://samploon.com/free-essays/food-waste/ about food waste around the world. And China was far from the first place in food waste. I think that it would be very relevant in the USA.
