The other day I came across this short video and I thought it was so powerful in its message. For as long as I can remember I have been quite conscious regarding food waste particularly since a trip to Uganda with a charity called World Challenge. This trip gave me an insight into the inequalities in the world especially regarding water and food distribution. ‘Don’t bin it, I’ll eat it’ are my common phrases. Personally, I just hate seeing food wasted into a bin when people in the world are starving. Therefore, I like to try hard to reduce food waste when cooking and occasionally burst my jeans button open so I dont have to see food go to waste. The statistic in this video is daunting in how much the waste of food impacts the economy. Food really does equal money and this is a concept which isn’t realised enough globally. Videos like this are great at sharing awareness in trying to reduce this global problem particularly focusing at the catering and hospitality sector.
Next time your cooking dinner just think will I eat all of this food? Next time you scrap your leftovers into the bin try and picture this video. If individually people take this new outlook then globally together this issue can be reduced.
