It is not practical to make a perfect amount of food every time. Left over food is very common, especially when you have guests at home. In those days, my grandmother used to give the left over food to some poor people who gladly take it. These days it is difficult to find people who are in need of food here in India. Thanks to our developing country - everyone has food. That doesn't give us excuse to throw away the left overs. There are millions of people still starving in some other part of our country or the world. Indirectly, the food we waste causes a global food imbalance and contributes to starvation. How? Yes, the more food gets wasted, the food demand increases which results in higher price for food. This higher price is a luxury for many people who cannot afford.
