Jamie Vibora started this petition to World Food Programme and

The amount of food waste that every person makes is getting larger and larger, and it is wrong and unsafe. And for the sake of our farmers, our land, and specially the less fortunate people who can't afford food, we must not throw away or disregard food easily. 

I've noticed that many people nowadays just easily throw their food away just because they've already eaten enough. So in order to lessen food wastes I move to petition the prices of food in restaurants to get lowered. Just like one of the restaurants I have seen through the power of internet, located in Toronto, Ontario is FARMHOUSE Tavern, founded by Darcy MacDonell. The restaurant lowers its prices until everything is sold and consumed properly. 

If every restaurant will do the same as MacDonell did, perhaps we can help our environment become better. Because through food wastage, we encounter these CONSEQUENCES without even noticing everything about it.

  • rotting food produces methane
  • it fills up landfills 
  • it is very unpleasant to see or to smell

The positive sides of this petition.

MERITS

  • People will buy more food because of the low price
  • More fresh food such as vegetables, fruits and meat will be sold

More and more unique dishes can be made

PHILOSOPHICAL ARGUMENT

  • Environmental Philosophy

When buying food from restaurants, as consumers we must be responsible enough to keep our trash thrown in the proper disposal. And same goes with food we must be responsible enough to avoid wasting food or even making leftovers too much. We are privileged to be able to have access in these kinds of dishes as some are not. One more thing that some restaurants can do is to donate their leftovers to the needy if they are not in favor of lowering their prices. 

We must be respectful to the farmers who make huge amounts of efforts to grow their crops, same goes for fishermen who actually risk their lives in order for them to get awesome and delicious seafood or fish that we enjoy.
