Don’t be the reason for people’s starvation
Lets start making change from our homes/schools etc
Hai everyone! I just want to discuss with you about an important issue, food wastage. Most of us are wasting food and we should work to stop it.
We have work on many ways to reduce it from the past many years but the progress is nothing. We would have several reasons for wasting it. But lets change the perspective of thinking for a while. Most of us are emotional, we help others if we would see a person with hunger by giving money or by offering food. Lets try to calculate, how many people are suffering like that in our society and how many could we help in our lives?, very complex right! Even though we have unexpressible humanity, we can’t go to each and every person in the world and offer food.
Lets go the other way. We are wasting the food daily which can serve for many hungry people which is also calculated and written every day on the notice board. Which means, we are indirectly making that much resources waste and indirectly reason for their starvation.
Now think about the question, “Do we truely deserve the word Humanity?”.
According to the recent studies, India has higgest population, more or less 4 lakhs of beggers in which 40,000 beggers are children. Its a situation which we have to feel bad. Every one in the society thinks, “Is this only because of me?” and leave it. But we are also the part of their starvation.
Now lets go through our reasons of food wastage.
1. We may got more food than we eat.
2. You may don’t like the food after you tasted it. So for the health purposes you may eat some and trow the rest.
3. You may came late to have food and after eating some food you realised that the time is up and you throw it.
Ofcourse these reasons might sound silly but this is what happens.
One of the solution is that start the meals with less amount. Inform the one who serves to put less. If you want, you can get it more after you complete it.
One more thing, this may sound silly but don’t rush to classroom throwing the meals. Either you come early or you finish it and leave.
Just think for a while when you waste the food, “people are starving, it may be not just only because me, but if I waste, I will be one the them due to whom the people are starving”.
So guys, people are starving and lets don’t make their situation even worse. We will work on it and hope that we reduce and at some point stop wasting the food.
