A Ton of Food

In 2011, the average American ate 1,996 pounds of food. That’s almost a full ton.

Special Diets

Forty-five percent of all Millennials, or those born in the 1980s and 1990s, have adopted special diets, including going vegan and gluten-free.

Wasted Food

About one-third of all food produced ends up in landfills. That’s a lot of wasted food!

10 Billion Donuts

That’s right: Americans eat 10 billion, donuts each year. How many do you think you contributed to that total?

Lots of Snacking

Rather than sitting down for well-defined meals, Americans now consume fully half their calories in snacks.
