Everyday, we produce, manufacrure and consume food. The rate of the world's production is enough to feed 10 billion people but the question is, why many people are still hungry? Why is there hunger? Every now and then, humans eat food, in restaurants, in home, malls and in many other places. Every year, we accumulate 1.3 billion tons of food waste, that are being dumped. Food losses and waste amounts to roughly US$ 680 billion in industrialized countries and US$ 310 billion in developing countries. Every year, consumers in rich countries waste almost as much food (222 million tonnes) as the entire net food production of sub-Saharan Africa (230 million tonnes). From farm to dinner table, the United States loses or wastes 133 billion pounds of food per year, the USDA reported in its 2014 report on food loss. That’s 31 percent of the country’s annual available food supply, or 429 pounds per person, per year. Americans’ food loss was worth about $161.6 billion at retail prices in 2010, the USDA says. Meanwhile, about 815 million people do not have enough food to lead a healthy, active life, and nearly 25 percent of people in developing countries are undernourished, according to the World Food Program. We all contribute to the food wasting. Let us start changing our ways, save food be practical, help reach the people who are far  who are unreachable. Let us make a zero hunger world.
