Studies show 50-percent of food produced in the world is wasted

Just how much food do you throw away?

Experts at the Reuters Food and Agriculture summit in Chicago this week said an estimated 30 to 50-percent of the food produced in the world goes uneaten.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, which plans to publish a report on food waste in April, the average American throws away 33 pounds of food each month.

That's about $40 a month worth of food in the trash.
