Food Waste: A Global Concern

This petition made change with 101 supporters!

According to FAO about 1.3 billion metric tons of food is wasted, 1 out of 7 of the world’s population “goes to bed hungry” and over 20,000 children under the age of five die from hunger yearly. With the large amount of food wasted and thrown away globally every year, it would be enough to feed every undernourished and hungry child in the world. The awareness of people in the food that they simply throw away can help fulfill the need of another person

With this campaign aims to raise awareness on the obsolete problem of food waste, malnutrition and hunger with the goal of organizing people to take action. It’s completely preventable but people seem to ignore. Therefore, it has become a recurring problem and now an alarming one. Hunger and malnutrition is a man-made problem. We caused and created the situation so we should be accountable for the consequences. Collective actions and complete awareness from the community create bigger impact to the country.
