With Food Prices High, There's Guilt About Waste But Dread of the Reheated Dinner
The average U.S. family of four spends from $500 to $2,000 a year on food they never eat, according to researchers' estimates. 
Food is the second-largest component in the U.S. solid waste stream, after paper and paperboard. Once paper and paperboard are removed for recycling, food ends up as the largest component in U.S. landfills and incinerators, weighing in at 33 million tons in 2010, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
