It is impossible to quantify how much exact food waste there is since food is wasted in so many ways. There is food thrown out in homes that for the most part gets mixed in with all other garbage, unless the household is composting. There is also food thrown out at grocery stores and at restaurant by the gallon. In general the US has a big wood wastage problem.
Food waste is considered the largest contributor to landfills in the US. The California Integrated Waste Management Board reports that 16 percent of disposed waste is from food waste. Several communities are discussing plans for projects to reduce food waste via composting and market analysis. See the link below for an example.
