The issue has, since the agricultural revolution, become an issue of distribution, not production. We could easily feed the world twice over at current production. Getting the food from farm to plate is the hard part.

In terms of climate, when food is grown, but then wasted, you've also burned fossil fuels to make fertilizer and transport the food, as well as possibly emitted methane during the growing of the food and its decomposition in a landfill. So waste reduction can have some real knock-on benefits in addition to feeding people, and be a part of how we lower overall emissions
