tldr: Farmers in Idaho leave potatoes to rot after harvesting , because there is no money to be made with them right now.

Instead of just distributing the surplus to those who may need it, we prefer to waste it. If anything shows the stupidity of our system, it is this imo.

"Tom Vilsack, who served as agriculture secretary during the Obama administration, put it this way: “It’s not a lack of food, it’s that the food is in one place and the demand is somewhere else and they haven’t been able to connect the dots. You’ve got to galvanize people.”"

"Haven't been able" as if anyone above ground level cares. Note that the US government still pays farmers to produce less or destroy crops. It's true that there isn't a lack of food, though. https://www.wfpusa.org/stories/8-facts-to-know-about-food-waste-and-hunger/
