What is restaurant food waste?

Every day, restaurants across America toss out tons of perfectly good food that they can't acquire at a fair price. This amounts to what's known as restaurant food waste. In other words, these establishments are throwing out food that could have been sold to others and used to help finance the running of the business. While many of these foods end up in landfills, others are donated to local food banks and charity organizations. Therefore, this is a huge issue that needs to be addressed.
