Food is wasted? My God, how much water that could be used is wasted by allowing it to flow to the sea?

Productive people have more than enough food (that is a good thing). That food is no all consumed is not a problem, except as a matter of economy for those chucking buying it and chucking it out. If I consume 100% of the food I buy, the “unwasted” food will not magically find its way to the table of an unproductive person.

Food that is removed from the shelves of a grocery store due to sell by dates is generally fed to hogs, not wasted. And I’d think the Left would be OK with recycling food back into dirt, from which more food can be grown.

The underlying premise is that some people go hungry, because others waste food. This is never the case.

Another point is that it is not smart to grow food on an “just in time” item. If you plan on shelving just enough food, then any drought or crop failure will equal productive people starving, let’s not return to those dark days of history.
