World Food Day

#1 Postby Padmmini » Thu Oct 16, 2014 4:23 pm

Today is World Food Day(16th October). We celebrate this day every year as a world food day. This day has been celebrated in honor of founding Food & Agriculture organization of UN.
Food wastage is biggest concern around the world. But let's talk out about India. There are some facts-

According to the latest survey around 40% food is wasted in India before it reaches to customers. This is a huge number and big loss. It also affects the economy of our country.
In India, today also near about 25 crores peoples are still sleeping without eating food.
Many peoples are not getting enough food and because of this they are suffering from malnutrition and many more diseases.

It's a request to take a pledge not to waste the food. We can follow few things in our daily life to stop the food wastage-

Buy the food as much is required only.
Cook food as much you can eat, that can full your stomach.
If in case the food is left give it to the person who is needed it or you can also give it to animals like Dogs, Cat or Cow. There are also some NGO's running who are focusing on Food Safety. If you call these NGO's they will come to you and collect the left food and distribute it to the peoples who are in need.

The World Food Day theme for 2014 is: “Feeding the world, caring for the earth”

Please don't waste food. Buy, Cook & eat as much food as you required only.
