1)We buy too much food.
2)We sometimes eat too much food.
3)We waste too much food.

We're living in an economically developed country so we have the means to do this. Maybe we need more awareness on how to reduce waste as this is affecting the environment in a negative way.

Yes, in my opinion most people are wasting food, even me. The main reason is that we are buying too much foods, more than we need to provide us. I always give my best to consume so much of the bought foods as possible.

Food that I have bought is mine to use as I please. Whether I eat it, waste it or throw it at scummy homeless people is no concern of anyone else.

I agree with @ALYAMAANI

Nowadays, the energy is cheap and with energy we can make food, when the more energy will increase the more food will increase, and the wasting food will be a big problem.

Part of the problem for me, is that I live alone. Most foods (or the amount sold) is aimed at 2 people+.

I've lost count of the amount of milk I used to throw out because it used to go off so quickly. I now buy UHT because it lasts longer.
