(NBC NEWS) — A new study is showing just how much food Americans are throwing out.
Researchers from Penn State analyzed data from 4,000 households.
They found that on average, Americans toss nearly a third of the food they buy!
That waste could be costing the average household about $1,800 a year.
Households with lower incomes, those who have to travel farther to reach a grocery store, and those who use a shopping list are less likely to waste food.
