By Kevin on September 30, 2015
Format: Paperback
This is truly an eye-opening book that has forced me to deeply examine an issue of which I knew little about and/or ignored up until now. It's very well written and clearly identifies the issue, drives home the magnitude of it using easy to grasp and often entertaining statistics, and then presents actionable solutions. I was impressed with how it strikes a balance between emphasizing the enormity of the food waste problem and then presenting many simple ways that the individual consumer can help to combat this to great affect. It left me feeling empowered as opposed to overwhelmed.

Format: Paperback
Food Foolish is packed with astonishing information. I found each chapter gave me shocking facts - "1/3 or more of the food we produce each year is never eaten". It is also wonderfully entertaining - "An elephant weighs about 1 metric ton. Now imagine 1.3 billion healthy elephants happily standing on each other in one pile. That's what we're losing and wasting from the food supply chain each year.". It stopped me in my tracks - "The magnitude of food waste is shocking. Imagine purchasing three bags of groceries. While driving home, toss half of one bag of food onto the road. That represents the loss that occurs during harvest, processing and distribution. Arrive home and immediately toss the other half of the bag into the trash. That's the waste experienced by retailers and consumers. Buy three, get two: Welcome to our food system." This book should be read by everyone, right now, and all of us need to pay attention to it's message.

This book is a first rate study of how big a role food waste plays in climate change and widespread starvation and why that role is underappreciated. The authors cover a lot of territory for a quick read providing enough statistics to make their point without overwhelming the reader. All environmentalists need to pay attention to food waste, and this book will be an attention-getter.

Stunning. To think wasted food is the third largest contributor to our planet's green house gas. If we each did a little bit to waste less, and to feed someone who needs a meal, the world would be a better place. You will definitely enjoy reading this book.
