Despite rising grocery prices, Americans are putting almost half the food they buy into the trash.
A study by the Natural Resources Defense Council found 40% of food gets tossed out. In the US, that comes to $165 billion in uneaten food.
The average family of four wastes more than $2,200 per year.
Fruits and vegetables are wasted the most. Seafood, grain products, meat and milk were commonly wasted.
