Bird Flu has affected the turkey supply, but not as much for Thanksgiving turkeys.
Bird Flu has affected the turkey supply, but not as much for Thanksgiving turkeys. - 

The Natural Resources Defense Council estimates that Americans trash 40 percent of our entire food supply. That works out to as much as $2,000 per year for a family of four. But how does that stand up on Thanksgiving, a holiday known for its leftovers?

We decided to put the question to you: Do you contribute to America's food waste with your Thanksgiving leftovers?

Post your after Thanksgiving meal photos on Instagram with the hashtag #leftovers and include our handle @MarketplaceAPM to see your photo magically appear on our map.
