One way to increase the amount of food available for war purposes is to cut
down on the proportion that is wasted. Studies on the amount of food waste
indicate that from 20 to 30 percent of all the food produced in this country is
wasted somewhere between the plow and the plate.
This means in concrete terms: If a farmer works 12 hours a day to produce
food, 3 of those hours are thrown away; and for every 8-acre field planted, 2 of
the acres are sown, cultivated, and harvested only to make bigger garbage dumps.
Incredible? Figures show that this is actually what happened before the war,
and sample studies made during the past few months indicate that the over-all
wastage of food has not been substantially reduced.
Higher prices, stronger demand, rationing, scarcities, and the world-wide
urgent need for all possible food are factors which work to reduce the normal
waste. But these are offset by shortages of labor, machinery, transportation,
and storage facilities; by the use of untrained help in food processing plants,
stores, and restaurants; by the increase of money available for purchase of food;
and by the fact that many housewives are working outside the home and have
had to relegate food purchase, preparation, and service to the status of an
incidental job.

Here, in brief, are where and how the waste of food occurs: ......
1. On the farm, some crops are left unharvested; in addition, insects, rodents,
and plant and animal diseases destroy hundreds of millions of dollars =
worth of food annually. Rats alone destroy as much food each year as xi;;
more than 200,000 farmers can produce!
2. Based on damage claims paid by Class I railroads, it is estimated that at
least 2 percent of all food is wasted in transit.. :
3. Waste in retail and wholesale markets amounts to 10 percent or more of all ..
perishable produce handled.
4. More people are eating in restaurants-up to 55 million meals a day are
now being served; and plate and kitchen waste is heavy. i
5. Garbage collections from homes have declined, but still the average indl- "
visual is throwing out half a pound of food or more every day. Much
of this wastage results from discard of left-overs; poor home storage; "
afi(l unwillingness to use bread crusts, outer leaves of lettuce and cabbage, r pii
tops of beets, turnips, celery, and green onions; failure to "clean up the
plates", and hasty or careless preparation, resulting in unappetizing meals.
The significant facts about food waste are these: ,ii
Few people willfully waste food-everyone tries to be frugal-yet the garbage
cans continue to fill up. ,i'
The waste that counts is the little bits and driblets that flow from every
home in a constant stream and build up to mountainous proportions on the
garbage dumps. ..
An important part of the waste consists of discards of foods not commonly 'T
p:iten: We peel and trim away great quantities of our most nutritious 4 ; "
foods, without ever thinking of this "refuse" as waste..,
Not everyone can be a food producer, but every man, woman, and child can tV '
hflp) reduce food waste. : .
Thi' data add up to a wastage of a quarter of all the food produced, with a
third of this amount being wasted in our homes. The housewife who eliminates
this waste entirely will save 75 cents out of every $5 In her food budget And
all together we can add substantially to the supply of food available to help:. ..
