Dumpster DIVERS

Problem / Wasting Food 

Many people suffer from hunger all over the world. In developed countries, however, staggering amounts of food are discarded every day. In Canada, for example, it is estimated that a third of food products sold in supermarkets actually ends up in the garbage. 

In the food industry, completely edible foodstuffs are thrown away because they fail to meet demanding consumer standards. Other items are thrown away just because their use-by date is imminent. However, all of this food could still be consumed.
