Food waste always increases on Thanksgiving. No matter how many plates you eat, there always seems to be a large quantity of food going into the trash can.
LawnStarter conducted a study to determine which states waste the most food. The website states, "We compared the 50 states based on how much food they waste, how much they repurpose, and what measures they have in place to reduce food loss."
According to the study, Oklahoma is one of the most wasteful states when it comes to food. The state landed at number five on the list.
