    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    I would rather use this money to help out Food Link. The shelves are getting empty because so many people need help.

    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Large scale production of meat is not environmentally friendly. Animals produce lots of methane which is damaging to the ozone layer. The grains used to feed these animals are much more environmentally friendly, however. If we consumed these grains instead of using vast amounts of them to feed livestock, the world and the people on it would be healthier. A diet heavy in vegetables and grains instead of meat has been linked to fewer medical complications and a longer lifespan.
