Waste editor: "Waste,not want not!" If I heard it once while growing up, I heard it a thousand times. I applaud the efforts of UC Merced in addressing the issue of food waste in this country.
We are the richest, most agriculturally blessed nation on Earth, and 50 million citizens are underfed? Not mentioned in the article, however, is the role of lawyers in the food wasting process: i.e., someone gets sick, someone gets sued and BAM! No more free food.
We bend over backwards being "politically correct." How about we quit thumbing our noses at God for giving us our natural bounty and become fully "ecologically correct"?
