Here are some tips from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) on just how to prevent it!
FAO estimates that, globally, nearly 14% of the food produced is lost between the collection and retail stages. Together with the food equaling to about 1/3 of all food produce, and together with the food vital resources like water, energy, and time used to produce it are also lost.
Food waste in landfills increases greenhouse gas emissions, negatively affecting climate conditions. FAO estimates that 38% of total energy consumption in the global food system is used to produce food that is lost or wasted.

Here are the 17 food heros by Eco Watch with our Executive Director on the list.
10 Edie Mukiibi Mukiibi is an agronomist from Uganda and vice president of Slow Food International since 2014. He learned early on that something wasn't working for the farming communities he worked with in his country. As a student in Kampala, he found the modern agronomy practices ignored many of the traditional methods and crops with which small-scale farmers were familiar. He eventually discovered the Slow Food movement and started a convivium to connect people and share information about crop diversity and traditional farming knowledge. His current project is to create 10,000 food gardens in Africa www.ecowatch.com/food-heroes-food-tank-2315516356.html#toggle-gdpr... See MoreSee Less
