Community Fridge - A step towards Zero Hunger!

THE WHY:

Food is the one of the most important things in our life. We need it to survive and to stay healthy. It is ironical that even though the world produces enough food to feed 10 billion people each year, 820 million people starve every year. This is because 1.3 billion tons of food is being wasted each year globally. Other factors like low agricultural productivity, natural disasters, pandemics and less access in remote areas also add to global hunger. But the biggest and most actionable cause remains food waste.

THE WHAT:

What we can all do is stop wasting food. We should only buy and cook as much food as we need so that nothing is left over. If we do end up with excess food, we should find a way to deliver it to people in need. I hope everyone who is reading this takes this action for our planet.

THE HOW:

Through this petition, we appeal to the corporator of T ward, Mumbai to install a community fridge in our locality. In case any family in the locality has leftover food, they can put it in the fridge. People who are hungry and need food can collect it from the fridge. This will not only ensure that no food is wasted, but also provide food to people who need it the most.

MAKE IT A MOVEMENT:

If this project is successful, we could urge neighboring localities to replicate the initiative. Very soon, it could spread through all of Mulund, then all around Mumbai, soon, all across India, and someday, around the world.

One small step towards feeding the hungry could grow into a massive global movement which could eradicate hunger across the planet and in doing so, meet the United Nations’ SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) – 2.

IMMEDIATE ACTION:

To be a part of this movement, you are requested to sign this petition as a token of your support.

With enough signatures, we can urge the local corporator to take the first step towards making this dream a reality!

Your signature will feed a hungry person!

With your support, someday, no human being will go to bed hungry ever again!

Thank you!
