Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Animals Die and their Flesh is Wasted

Jonathan Bloom, journalist, author of American Wasteland and writer of a blog raises the issue of eating meat and wasting some of it: http://www.wastedfood.com/

Sadly, this is the case in most developed countries. In the U.S. about 20 percent of all meat produced in is not consumed. As Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Emory Center for Ethics, said: “To treat food cavalierly leads to a lack of appreciation of the importance of food, of the fact that some go without it, of the suffering of animals that the carnivores among us are willing to tolerate to eat our food.”

Please visit Every last bite: Why wasting animal protein is unethical:

Indeed, the wasting of any food raises serious ethical and spiritual issues.  What does it say about our sense of stewardship when God’s animals are tortured and slaughtered, and their flesh ends up in the trash? In a sense, we are saying we don’t care about God’s provision and we don’t care if God’s farmed animals suffer needlessly. Without any doubts, this is a double offense to our loving Creator.
