I think it is a bit more complicated than it appears. The logistics of transporting food causes waste as does selling and preparing it, better to throw away questionable food than poison your costumers. However we have not considered the production of livestock feed. How much does the US grow for livestock feed?

Unless you look into how much waste there is in the US alone with regard to food.
Vast quantities of fresh produce grown in the US are left in the field to rot, fed to livestock or hauled directly from the field to landfill
