    Globally,14%of food is lost between harvest and retail . Significant quantities are also wasted in retail and at consumption level.An estimated 18%of total global food production is wasted (11% in household,5% in food service and 2% in retail).
    Food waste burdens waste management system, increase food insecurity and is contributer to climate change , biodiversity loss and land pollution.
    Taking myself as an example ,I also wastes 30%of my food.It has bad impact on environment.
    Food waste that cannot be recycled may sent to landfill where it rots, causing a bad affect on environment by releasing methane.
    We can save food by putting leftovers in the fridge in shallow containers so they cool down
    quickly to help extend their shelf life.

    For many people in the world, food waste has become a habit, as we buy more food in the market, leave fruits and vegetables to spoil in our homes or take away more rations than we can eat.
    These habits put additional pressure on our natural resources and harm our environment. When we waste food, we waste the work, effort, investment, and precious resources (such as water, seeds, fodder, etc.) invested in producing it, not to mention the resources devoted to transporting and processing food. In short, food waste increases greenhouse gas emissions and contributes to climate change.
    So we have a big problem and we have to stop wasting food. First, we have to adopt a healthier and more sustainable eating pattern. Second, we make sure that we buy only our food, three, store food wisely, and fourth, we respect food because it is a blessing of God's blessing upon us, and food forms a bond between people. We must renew our relationship with food. By outlining the procedures involved for its manufacture, reading the literature on how food is produced, and learning about the farmers whose produce we buy.

    According to my vision Food waste refers to the food which was thrown away, since it was not needed because when you take extra food in your bowl or plate without knowing your capacity to eat, then wastage of food happens. Wastage of food can occur at any stage whether in production, processing or packaging, as it has to go to the market for sale and consumption, which is known as food supply chain.

    first,in my community there is a high rate of food wastage since many people decide to put much on their plates and yet they cannot finish it so they decide to throw it away instead of serving some to those that donot have what to eat.I can only reduce this wastage by teaching people the importance of food in their bodies so as they can get to know that their losing things like vitamins,proteins,carbohydrates.
    I can also teach them how to budget first before they can prepare a certain amount because when they budget,they will get to know the number of people who are going to eat that food instead of cooking 10kilograms of posho for five people but instead prepare 1kilogram thus reducing food wastage.

    I would educate the uneducated on the dangers of wasting food like you may have some left overs and instead of keeping them for the mere future to eat and in this way you won't have to spend any coin, If i were among the government members I would place fines on people who waste food and in this way food waste would be limited.

    Families should cook enough food that can be consumed by the whole family and this way no food will be wasted, shops also have food which has an expiry date so if a certain food is not being bought the shop should donate it to the needy to prevent food wastage, schools should budget well for the food it will need to cater for the students per month and buy the right amount to prevent having extra useless food, governments should also donate some food to the needy.

    I would make sure the above is done to prevent food wastage.

  • idealistic_song | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    As a student and a member of my community would advise the people on the dangers of wasting food and to also remind them that there are people out there that lack what to eat and I would also put up posters or flyers containing the same message.
    I think the government should put a law that restricts people from throwing away food or even fine them for the food they have thrown same can be applied in a restaurant incase a customer comes in buys food eats some and leaves the rest, they should be given a fine.
    For the families and schools, I think they should try talking to the children and tell them why it is bad to throw food and if that fails, they should just try disciplining them because for us in Uganda most parents follow the proverb "Spoil the rod and spoil the child".

  • polite_football | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    The government can help to reduce food waste by organizing community talks to educate people about how they can preserve their food forexample by smoking,salting,refridgerating and sundrying like fish

  • idealistic_song | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 04 Nov 2022

    I know we trying to reduce food wastes but don't you think that these food wastes are good in a way that they are used as manure which helps in crop growing whereby more food is produced and they are also used as raw materials for some industries.

    Food waste is second component of municipal solid waste. Food waste all result in huge energy and water loses associated with producing wasted food. The U.S department of agricultural estimates that people of U.S waste about 27 present of their food. Government scientists today are realized that finding way to reduce food represent a largely unrecognized opportunity to cover energy and to control global warming.
    Methods to reduce food waste
    1_ Plan meal ahead
    2_ Rotate time sensitive food in refrigerator
    3_Freeze surplus garden vegetable
    4_process or dehydrate surplus or damaged fruits, produce and meat
    5_Compost kitchen waste

  • attentive_physics | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School B | Pakistan 04 Nov 2022

    We can reduce wastage of food in the community by launching campaigns. By sparing a plate for needy and hungry at a the restaurants and at home.
    Policy maker in the country should design and political leaders and masses should support the policies for zero waste programs. i.e. there must be laws for all stakeholders in the country in this regard. Food wastage need to be approved as crime in any country.
    There must be awareness programs at school and curriculam should be installed at school in this regard. Activities must be executed at schools to promote food sharing and zero wastage.
    I will make it habbit that left overs of food must not be in the dustbin. I will discourage the food storage. Donations and sharing food must be encouraged massively in order to achieve zero hunger programs. Promote the kitchen garden and organic food to support healthy food.

    A Study Says On Average, 40% of food produced was being disposed of. This means that 7.5 tons of food are discarded daily. In India, wasting a ton of wheat and rice would mean wasting 1,500 and 3,500 liters of water severally that goes into their production. On a global scale The associated economic, environmental, and social prices of this loss at around $1 trillion, $700 billion, and $900 billion p.a. severally.
    Understanding the facts, how would I reduce food waste – Recycle with a better strategy like turning waste food into animal feeds and can support as an element supporting manufacturing sectors (Bio-Gas & Fertilizers) other importantly, serving mankind as part of feeding the poor who looks for food
    Our Government and our society can also play a vital role in supporting waste food management, an innovative food waste treatment system is an opportunity for businesses looking to do their part for the environment by reducing food waste in landfill and creating renewable clean energy.
    What I could do to reduce food waste
    I will follow and insist my fellow humans follow “RRR” (Triple R Formula)
    Reduce: Improve food storage and reduce wastage at home. Buy what you use, and use it all.
    Reuse: If you don't eat everything you make, freeze it for later or use the leftovers as an ingredient in another meal.
    Recycle: Recycle as much as possible.

    The most important thing to avoid waste of food is to educate people about the significance of food for human beings. Moral education of people in this regards is very crucial. Government should ask schools, shops, restaurants and religious scholars to propegate the instructions about avoiding wastage of food . We should adopt good manners at homes to eat food so that food should not be wasted. It may increase the chances of availability of food for others

    Food waste cannot be eliminated completely but it can be reduced. Some tips to reduce food waste are:
    1. At Home:
    * Buy and eat when there is a need.
    * Don't overserve. This is one of the main reason for food wastage.
    * Eat your food accordingly to the situation.
    * Don't throw your leftovers. Leftover foods doesn't mean that they are spoilt foods.
    * Manage to eat what you have.
    2. At Restaurant:
    * Store required foods in the refrigerator.
    * Share the leftover food items to poor people, beggers, and road-side animals and even to charities.
    * Avoid overbuying.
    * Giving customers more options.
    * Promote buffet system.

    Government measures:
    * The government has to introduce various schemes and should make the people participate actively in reducing the food waste.
    * It should introduce schemes to remove poverty as poverty is the root cause for all evils related from finance to hunger.
    * It has to save the food in refrigerated warehouses in order to help the people when there is a shortage of food during natural calamities or in emergency situation.
    Every country has to do this to prevent food shortage and leftovers should be utilized.
    According to the idiom' sharing is caring' we must not waste our food and extra food can be shared with your neighborhood or can be given to charities and every community has to contribute something against food waste.

  • charismatic_eel | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    first the food is being wasted in different countries rich people always have upper hand and they get all types of food on their tables and they left big amount of food as waste material and throw it in dust bin rather than giving it to needy so poor people have to eat food from dustbin to remove their starvation that causes many type of severe diseases in my view; the food being thrown in dust bin daily should be given to needy so that they can fulfill their needs at community level their should be centers which keep a check and balance in community so the food being wasted can be given to those who deserves

  • skillful_concept | GHS Bahawalpur Cantt A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    Every country or community has some norms which teach people to avoid wastage of food. The problem of food waste arises when the food is in abundance. People must be aware of good manners so that if food is available more than need then they should consume it according to their need and don't spoil the whole amount of food. In different ceremonies appropriate quantity of food should be served to the people and remaining food should distributed among the poor and needy people. Instead of throwing, we must not store unnecessary food items at home to be expired and wasted rather they should be given to the people who need them.
    On government level there should be proper arrangements for storage of food items like grains, fruits and vegetables. Cold stores must be available for the fruits and vegetables. Government should assure the continuous supply of food to the people without any wastage. Individually we can share the extra food with our close people . We can make welfare organizations to collect the extra food items from the well off people and to distribute them among the needy people . Actually it's all a matter of sense and responsibility to avoid the wastage of food m

  • breathtaking_meteor | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    I think food is mostly wasted in restaurants and they are also the ones who can take part to reduce food wastage. All the leftovers of the whole day are wasted. These leftovers can feed hundreds of people. There should be a proper food preservation campaign in which all the customers are convinced to only buy the portions they can eat and the leftovers should be packed properly and hygienically and should be distributed honestly among the deserving .

  • educated_ladder | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    In my opinion food waste is literally like a curse which couldn't be eliminated from our society until we do something for it
    Because we all know how and where is food wasted but the thing should be done is to take step against it
    For example in my society, in my area people waste so much food especially in marriages and parties
    They just fill their plate up to end but at the end don't finish it
    I could give these people awareness of the imp. Of food that their are many people in area who go to bed hungrily every day
    Except of wasting this food they should at least give this food to poor and starving people
    Also their are many ways to arise awareness of the importance of food and convince such type of people not to waste food

  • phenomenal_lion | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    I belongs to Pakistan. We can reduce food wastage in our country by training our students and children about the awareness of food shortage. The other reason is that it is not our habbit to save food.The person who is rich buy more food and the food is waste .On the festivals many food is waste. It should be controlled.We should not waste our food.

    In our school, many people complain that the school food is dry, over spiced or hard. Therefore, they try and throw the food away so that they won't have to eat it. But this can have some side effects. If they do not eat any of their lunch, they could be starving until they get home (which could result in drowsiness or headaches). Since we have pudding after we have eaten our main meal, pupils can throw away their lunch and only eat ice cream, or whatever desert they choose. This can be very unhealthy for them.
    To better the situation, the school cooks could try and improve the quality of the lunches and see if the pupils like it. If they do, they can continue using that recipe. Of course, the pupils cannot have the same meal every day, so the cooks could experiment with different foods.
    To add on, they could make an assigned day for any one dish. For example, in our school, we have a fish fingers day on Friday. This means that the cooks would always bake fish fingers on Friday so that the children will have something to look forward to.

  • sensible_wombat | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    First, in my country Pakistan, I am not glad to say that there is a lot of food is wasted. It is one of the basic reasons of food shortage. We must develop awareness to the people about wasting of food varies with its shortage. We must build storage capacitors to store the extra food. In developing countries, food is produced excessively but due to less population, it is not utilized and it is wasted. Also, in the festivals, it is a trend to prepare excess food , as a result it becomes a waste product. And it is thrown away. We must overcome these circumstances so that we can reduce the global food crisis!!

  • lucky_impression | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    Food waste is a massive problem overall the world. Food waste when disposed of in landfills produces harmful greenhouse gases such as methane and carbon dioxide, contiributing to global warming and climate change. In the events, we waste too much food which can fulfill the hunger of many people. We must help the poor and buy food as we need. Government should take a proper action about food waste problem

  • artistic_recipe | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 05 Nov 2022

    Food waste occurs for a variety of reasons including uneaten foods that is thrown out at homes , shop and restaurants. Nearly 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted in a year. For every minute nearly 1000 tons of food is wasted. How can we reduce food waste ? First thing , save and eat left overs it is one of the best way to reduce food waste . Pickling ,Drying , Canning , Fermenting , Freezing and Curing are all methods to reduce food waste . one of the best way to reduce food waste is when we are preparing food excess, we can share the food to the people who are not able to get the food easily .

  • supportive_philosophy | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 05 Nov 2022

    Each and every individual can take a great part in reducing the hunger in the world by only taking the food of their need.
    In my opinion, one of the most important reasons of food wastage is that people aren't aware of that their leftovers can make the lives of many who hardly gets one time food in the day.
    To reduce the food wastage, I would suggest that there should be proper courses in the schools for the children that aware them from where the food in their plates come from and how many people are involved in bringing the food to their plates and how long does it take to reach them. If they are aware of these aspects they should become more conscious about it. Moreover, Mothers should teach their children not to waste the food from the young age.
    The Governments should take notice about the food wastages in their country. There should be proper laws to punish the people who waste food.
    The developing countries like USA,UK and China can play an important role in reducing the food wastage.These countries have better resources to produce enough food that can be given to the countries like Somalia, Ethopia and many more whose about 50% of the population are undernourished.
    The leftovers of the people should be properly packed and should be distribute among the needy honestly.
    There is a startup named "Rizq" in Pakistan which takes the leftover from the events like weddings and distribute among swerving . Such more startups are needed to reduce food wastage.
    This can help the world to overcome food crisis.

  • decisive_chocolate | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    In my opinion, in order to conquer this food waste it will have to start from the base of any country which is the families and here the elders in the family advise the other members on the dangerous possible outcomes of food waste , teaching them on how to manage the least available food in order for it to be enough for all family members in that way as they associate with the members in their different communities they can also be able to campaign against food waste.Remember in these different communities so are schools included therefore if the teachers employed have knowledge on how to avoid food waste, they can impart the same knowledge in the students. And on the side of the government it can control this by setting strict policies and guidelines for the people against food waste as well as also putting up different television or even radio programmes advocating for enough but not excess food for each person and for the shops they can just pot up posters on their doors against food waste.

  • secure_theory | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    Most of the food that goes to waste is due to expiration.
    Food should be distributed by privately owned business before expiration and governments should encourage the policy through tax exemptions and tax cuts to business because wasted food is dumped in landfills that causes land pollution and give out greenhouse gases.
    Personally we can reduce food wastage by saving leftovers for later because most food can last longer and shouldn't be dumped.

  • daring_cherry | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 05 Nov 2022

    In my community, in order to reduce food wastage i would first of all lead campaigns against food wastage to create awareness in people about the dangers of food wastage like leading to food insecurity. I would then make posters and post them in different places, some will be advising shops to avoid throwing of expired food and instead use it to feed animals of further more donate them to orphanages if their expiry dates are coming near in order to prevent food wastage. Other posters could be addressed to schools and families arguing them to buy and cook food that is just enough for them, incase of left overs, they can be kept and eaten later instead of just throwing. Others would be encouraging others to share their excess food with those that don't have enough like street children. This way food waste would reduce in my area.

    Such as water ,seed ,soil , diesel ( used in tracters) etc
    And most important it waste the hard working of farmers

  • cultured_woodpecker | Bal Bharati Public school A | India 05 Nov 2022

    Food waste is a major problem in our world today and there is a huge need for an effort to reduce the wastage of food in society and promote the need to save and respect food in the young generation.
    Every day tons of food is wasted by hotels, restaurants, households, etc. because of the careless people who exploit the fortune of having food to eat.
    I think that there can be food banks arranged by the government where the food that is wasted can be given to needy people. There can be awareness camps arranged by schools and organizations to promote the need to stop the wastage of food by the young generation. Most importantly, there is a strict need for people to learn to take enough food to make them full and not stuff their plates and then waste food. Everyone should learn to respect the fortune of getting food and remember that there is someone just like them who may be sleeping hungry.

  • interesting_artist | Al Quds Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    I think reducing food waste is one of the most significant ideas which plays a great role in decreasing the impact of the global food crisis. I have several suggestions about reducing the food waste. In terms of restaurants, governments should monitor them by putting some cameras in those places and if any person demands food and didn't eat it , he should pay a fine. The collected money should go to needy people.
    In terms of homes, governments can set up a website which shows the place of poor people in each area so the near citizens can delivere their over food to the people who need it instead of throwing it a way. In addition, the government can held a competition to encourage people to adopt some needy families ,then reward the most effective people in a ceremony. Personally, l would set up a Facebook page to raise my colleagues' awareness about being aware when we cook food to get what we can consume only with out wasting food. Also, I would encourage my friends to held a campaign for collecting the leftovers from restaurants and give to hungry people in my community .

  • dependable_region | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    According to my opinion, which is the opinion of the majority, that developed countries should abandon their selfishness and know the bad condition of everyone in terms of nutrition, as there is plenty of food and enough for millions of people. So, stores should not throw excess food and give it to the needy, and governments should provide food appropriately for families, and the school should give its students necessary food for them and families. The rich should not throw excess food in the garbage and give it to the needy and raise their children to be humble with the poor and share food with them, and the state must establish a law calling for sharing food.

  • blessed_reflection | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 05 Nov 2022

    I suggest the government should start from the primary level by inculcating it into school activities both in secondary level and university level where they will be taught the dangers,causes, benefits e.t.c of food wastage and through this means the level of food wastage will be reduced and tackled with. It is possible that as students are taught in school they will also get their parents to notice about the dangers,causes, benefits of food wastage.

  • daring_opinion | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    Alot of countries have these fancy restaurants and sweet shops that always cook and serve fresh meals ,but at the end of the day throws all what's left in the garbage .
    Instead of doing that they can donate them . The amount of food they threw over the years could have solved the world's hunger issue.
    But at school the canteens food can rotten u know ? without it being eaten by anyone .
    Instead of throwing the food , before it rottend donate it , other people can really use the food that's left.
    Alot of families would cook double the amount of food they eat and then most of it gets thrown away . Instead of doing that cook less food that the family can finish in a day ,less food will be wasted then.
    Alot of shops leave their food to expire then they throw it , but why won't they give the food away before it expires if no one is going to buy it?
    Food wasting is what caused hunger among countries, every uneducated should be educated about that , and that people not eating can cause them lack of important body liquids that can cause alot of mental and physical issues.

  • fierce_moose | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 06 Nov 2022

    Reduction of Food wastage can be occur when we realize that how much we waste food on whatever places where we eat food, we must make a food or diet plan. Therefore, the issue of food crisis can be controlled. Here thing of think is that what we do that the problem of food wasting can be controlled.
    1: Food crisis is prevailing due to less opportunities of jobs, Government should be observe about this.
    2: After the flood in Pakistan 90% wheat is ruined.
    3: Due to the costly prices of food, a common man cannot afford meal for him & his family , Perhaps it is the reason of food crisis.

    ☆ NEVER WASTE FOOD BECAUSE MANY PEOPLE DYING FOR IT

  • believable_engineer | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 06 Nov 2022

    The main reasons for food wastage are lack of awareness in people,luxurious life style,people do not have proper training of storing food and do not have proper storage facilities,food is also wasted on celebrations and on festivals in a big proprtion .

    Food Waste happens at several levels. Right from production, to process to distribution and to the end consumer's consumption. I would like to address the issue that could be done easily to reduce food consumption wastage.
    At restaurants, having a special counter for the leftovers, neatly packed, would help those who are deprived of food to consume. Also, the restaurants should levy an extra charge for those who waste food. And those eat completely in table could be given some discounts.
    At home, cooking the right quantity of food for the number of people at home would be a big help to reduce food wastage. For e.g., In our family it is one menu for one day for all. My mom doesn't like to me to say that I wouldn't eat this, because I don't like it. At our home, what's on plate should be emptied. The concept of one menu for one person in the family should not be encouraged. It is the collective social responsibility for all of us to ensure that we cherish and eat what we get.
    At our home, our grandmother plans and organizes the kitchen so well that every item that is required would be sufficient but not abundant.
    At schools, the schools should insist on no food wastage. Also, the parents should be advised not to dump too much of food to eat for the kids at school. The lunch box should be balanced and just the right portion so that the kid doesn't waste at school.
    The school canteens should also have a specific menu designed for the day. A large spread would always lead to wastage as everyone would be tempted to taste variety of food items at the same time.

    India is also known for its large weddings. Spending lavishly on a huge spread for the wedding dinner and lunch is part of several family weddings. Some awareness has set in now among the young generations that during weddings, collectively they decide to have some niche menu with limited portions so that no one wastes food.
    At wedding halls, if there is excess food, arrangements could be done to neatly pack the excess food and that be distributed to several homeless people, orphanages and old age homes. If this is done in a pre-planned way, we would not only be making our people who are attending the wedding happy with a delicious food and menu but also many more out there, who are starving for good food.
    Every citizen should equally take the responsibility to reduce the food wastage.

  • sociable_desert | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 06 Nov 2022

    We stay familiar with the amount of food wastage in social gatherings. It rises as an
    amusement how we cannot save that food which is thrown. Explainable why the maids would ask me to finish all bits of my food because they value it, so should we. The food unused by caterers ends up as food waste. Food wastage in these gatherings should be considered an authoritarian offence. NGOs often play an important role in providing resources to those who cannot avail them themselves. Inaugurating more NGOs and making it mandatory for caterers to partner with them and donate their fresh food would help reduce wastage and feed a lot more. Our governments should also keep a check on fair distribution. Tonnes of wheat and grain rot in factories during storage. Either we should introduce more effective storage methods or improve our distribution facilities.
    In my family, many follow this typical mindset when guests come over that the food we order can for once be more than the amount we need but it shouldn’t be less. And I am against this. If we order less, food can be ordered again, but why waste it? I try to encourage this more. Whenever my friends come over or we are ordering something within our family, I always calculate and ask everybody how many pieces of something they would eat and order wisely.
    We all by now should know our diet and take food accordingly. I remind my younger siblings how much they eat regularly and they should not take more than that.

    We donot give value to food therefore it gradually decrease. We waste a lot of food in marriage functions and other gatherings. Instead of giving it to needy people, we throw it. There are many reasons of waste food. Some of there are; =Lack of awareness among people =Lack of training of people =Lack of habit to save food =Resources, more food buy, then it waste =In festivals cultures, more food buy, then it waste =Storage capacity SOLLUTION= By giving awareness to people, by making the habit to save food and in festivals necessary food is bought, we can overcome this problem

  • educated_ladder | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 06 Nov 2022

    In my opinion food waste is literally like a curse which couldn't be eliminated from our society until we do something for it
    Because we all know how and where is food wasted but the thing should be done is to take step against it
    For example in my society, in my area people waste so much food especially in marriages and parties
    They just fill their plate up to end but at the end don't finish it
    I could give these people awareness of the imp. Of food that their are many people in area who go to bed hungrily every day
    Except of wasting this food they should at least give this food to poor and starving people
    Also their are many ways to arise awareness of the importance of food and convince such type of people not to waste food

  • calm_deer | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    l'm so glad l was taught not to waste food. My father always say that the food is fruit of the labors of farmers so we should appreciate their labor and also be reminded that we are blessed with a meal unlike those who cannot get food on their plate. l wish my friends could also see that when they waste their food.

  • shy_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    My parent's since I was child have always taught me to never waste food and made sure that my plate was always empty. They taught me to only take smell portion at first as you can always get more later than haveing left in plate only to throw it away. They also showed me how some less fortunate people have to life throughout the day without food while some ignorantly waste it. That completly changed me as a person.

  • emotional_moon | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    I think a big part of the problem is that shops buy way more food than they can sell in the first place. I'm actually hoping for a future where they only take in what they're confiden they can sell, and customers have to plan around that. If you know the supermarket gets new milk, for example, on certain days, go buy milk around those days. Better than the shops having to throw vast quantities of food away.

  • admirable_fish | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 06 Nov 2022

    I belong from Pakistan. In my opinion the causes of food waste are:
    •Awareness:
    In my opinion there is no awareness about food in the world. People don't know that food waste have negative impact on society. To reduce food waste, the government should open the awareness institutions to reduce food waste.
    •Training:
    Training play an important role to reduce food waste. Teachers, parents and other institutions should train the children to reduce food waste.
    •Resources:
    Some people do not have resources to save food, so they waste it and throw in the garbage. Some countries do not have resources to trade with other countries, it also causes the food waste.
    •Festivals and Cultures:
    The lot of food are waste in festivals and cultures. The 400 tones of food which is wastes from festivals each year.
    •Storage facilities:
    Some countries have not storage facilities which causes the food waste. They don't stores the food( fruits and vegetables) which may cause the rot.

  • earnest_crow | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 06 Nov 2022

    I can reduce food wastage by eating food without wasting food and I am a child who does not eat food if I don't like but after reading these comments I am feeling bad for each and every grain I wasted without eating and I knew that many countries are suffering because of food crisis and food wastage can be avoided by ;

    ★Eat whatever you have :
    Cause many peoples are not having a hand of food so if you waste food you are not only wasting food but also affecting somebody's life on this earth .

    ★Food wastage in restaurants :
    Many developed countries in the world are having excessive amount of food and they are wasting them in restaurants. They are not offering it to poor people in the streets

    ★Food :
    The food you are eating in your plate is not just a food but also the hardwork of many peoples where you're mom will be preparing it in early morning ,your father who is working hard for day and night to give you a good food and finally the farmers who are ploughing the ground for day and night ,waiting days and months for the seeds to grow and finally the one spoon of food you eat these much stories behind it .

    SO DO NOT WASTE FOOD .

  • easygoing_signature | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 06 Nov 2022

    As a citizen of one of the most populous countries, I have always wondered if there is enough resource to feed and satisfy the hunger of whole population. Many statistical studies put forth very crucial reports on earth’s capacity to feed humanity. It results obvious problem of famine itself the shortage of food is also likely to cause conflicts, mass migration and even war likely to fight over the access of food and water resources. Even after uncountable number of campaigns and awareness program about the importance of food as a potential resource to sustain humanity, still 3, 00,000tons of food is wasted every day.

    What could we possibly do?

    “It is each and every individual’s responsibility to work for subsistence their species”.
    Not throwing away food just because they are leftovers, buying food according to their food intake capacity, sharing the food with people in need, managing food waste can happen only when every human disposes his greed of wanting everything to himself.
    Be it home, school, society or government, it only acts as a medium to instill the importance of saving food resources.

    The fact that wasting food is a concern, we are destroying the farmlands which doubles the effect.
    Either we avoid food wastage or find the way to create food virtually to sustain ourselves.

    'The realistic solution can only occur if people drift their minds to cause of future welfare'.

  • gentle_cat | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    I think food waste can be reduced with the following :Buy only wath l need . I don't throw anything . Eat smaller portions of food at home or use it to make a different dish . Some food waste may be inevitable so the Ministry of Agriculture can collect excess food from the know places that it specifies for the citizens that use it in the manufacture of organic fertilizer . Surplus food can be donated to poor families next you.

  • free_seal | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    At a first, in our society there is a lot of waste of food, maybe someone else needs it, there are many ways to reduce food waste, here are some of these ways:
    1- Identify the people responsible for reducing food waste.
    2- Recycle what can be recycled from food.
    3- Use less food.
    4- Make sure to buy only the food you need.
    Instead of throwing it in the trash and donating it, institutions can contribute to reducing food waste by making awareness flyers about it. Stores can also donate some food to people in need. As for schools, teachers can educate students not to throw away leftovers and give it to the poor. Why not start We keep food wisely and use less food, because reducing food waste reduces poverty and hunger and combats climate change.

  • glorious_lake | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    The possibility of reducing food waste is the responsibility of the entire community, by cooperating together according to a system that is easy for everyone, and he who has more food, wraps it in a beautiful way and sends it to his neighbor in need, and so on. We do not want to say that we reduce our food and cook only as needed; On the contrary, we work more in order to give to the needy or to poor neighbors and orphans. We must feel for others because, as our Noble Messenger Muhammad (may God bless him and grant him peace) said, we are like one body. And in restaurants, the same system is also wider To pack excess food and serve it to workers in a factory or company. This increases the bonds between the members of the community, and there is no food wasted or wasted.

    One of things l found to have a gigantic impact is making shopping lists and sticking to them . Usually , my dad would do the groceries by memory , but we'd always end up with a good few products at the end of the week that were spoiled . After he had travelled and couldn't go into public places me and my mom took that over and we started making lists because we needed the crutch as to not forget anything . Now, we throw out a bit of rapidly aging fruit(think strawberries and the like )... and that's about it . Maybe the odd bit of meat that went off before its date ,but that is not something we have much influence over.

    Food is a blessing, but the problem of food waste has spread, and I have solutions to this crisis /
    The family / The family should cook no more than they need
    School / Students may be encouraged with flyers to conserve food
    The government can hold competitions to reduce food waste, as each family places a box in front of its house containing food that is surplus to its needs so that they can transfer these boxes for distributions to the poor
    These are ways to reduce food waste

  • unique_reality | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    Well then, we have to reduce food waste. How ? Well I will tell you how.
    First, when we go to restaurants, we must order an amount of food that satiates us. We should not ask for more because we will not be able to complete the food, so there is an amount of food left on the plate. We will throw it away, and this is wrong. Therefore, we must ask for the amount of our saturation, not more. This also belongs to the government, stores, families and schools. Stores must donate food that people do not buy and whose validity is close to expiring. Before it expires, stores must donate it to the poor and the government as well. Schools must put a sufficient amount of food for the student, so he does not like to increase the food because it will harm the health of the student as well. Also, the mother at home must cook enough food for two days so that household expenses do not exceed food every day. It is better to cook food for two days

  • jovial_flower | Alkhansaa Prep Co Ed School B | Occupied Palestinian Territory 06 Nov 2022

    In my opinion I think the main reason of food crises is wasting food from people in all places even in restaurants, houses, .....etc
    And also don't forget the international policy which has the big hand and responsible for this crise to control the destiny of the people especially in the undeveloped countries .
    I hope from all who read this comments to begin from himself to reduce wasting food to solve global food crises.

  • active_tree | Futures Hurghada Language School | Egypt 06 Nov 2022

    I personally feel that 30%of the food is just in the garbage and that’s unfortunate, but this is because sometimes the food that we buy is expired , so the solution for this is that when the factories produce food it has to be in a limited amount so it can have time to finish from the store before its expired date ends and also people’s job around the world is to buy the amount of food that is needed so like that the food will not have time to get expired so I think that this is a really important way to save the wasting of food around the world , this problem is going to be for the seller and the buyer in the same time because like that the buyer’s money is wasted on expired food and it’s a wasting problem for the seller too because like that the food that the seller sales is useless .

  • flowing_twilight | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 07 Nov 2022

    Why is food important?

    Food and water are only the two essential things that our body needs for survival. Healthy foods keeps us healthy, strong, fit and fine.

    How does food get wasted?

    The food that we all eat in home get wasted by various ways. Such as:-

    ~Sometimes a person or other couldn’t finish their food. Then that left over food goes in fridge or it gets thrown or fed to animals.

    How can we prevent the food waste?

    We can simply minimize or prevent the food wastes at home by:-
    ~ Just make sure that the food which is cooked is enough for the rest of the family.
    ~Do not cook food which is more than enough.
    Do not buy things which is enough for a month or so on, because some fruits might rot or some other items such as bread and flour might get expired.
    ~Never leave the food uncovered.

    At a restaurant:-

    ~Do not throw the waste food but instead just feed them to the hungry beggars.

    As for the government:-

    ~The government could collect the waste food and the food can still be eatable, then feed then between the hungry beggars.
    ~If the food is no longer eatable, then our government could distribute then between farmers because they could use the waste food as a compost for the plants.
    ~Government could also provide a good land for farmers for agriculture.

  • quickwitted_tamarind | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 07 Nov 2022

    Currently, in my school, we have had a lot of food waste, however, we are trying to put a stop to this. If you eat all your food, the teachers will give you a reward like a sticker to encourage both that person, and their peers.
    I think that in order to reduce food waste, not just one person needs to help, but many people have to take part in eating all that is on their plate.
    I think it would be a good idea for restaurants to let you take all you want , but if you cannot eat it all, then you have to pay for what you did not eat. Whilst this could seem harsh, it means that you only eat what you need because if you leave food on your plate, then no one else can eat it, so it will have to be disposed of.
    I think that shops probably have a lot of food waste: They may put on prices that could be to expensive for some people because of the cost of living crisis. I think shops should price their items at a lesser cost. While this may seem like a loss, it may make their shop more popular, so they could potentially get more money.

    Our society faces several problems, one of which is food waste, which occurs through buying more than what is required,ordering a large meal in a restaurant,not being able to finish it,and throwing leftovers into waste.
    This problem can be solved with the help of the government, families and schools by giving leftovers to the needy or as natural fertilizers, preparing a new meal from it,or storing food at an appropriate temperature,and thus we have solved the problem of food waste

    Well!
    Food wastage is a also a cause of food shortage. Many peoples who have access to eat and buy alot of food let their food in dustbins after eating enough .
    Why can't they just give this food to needy and poor?
    Around 36 million tons of food is wasting in hotels, houses,parties etc
    While the peoples don't have access to buy food let theirs elves hungry!
    Why?
    Because they can't even buy food for themselves as the prices of food are increasing and reaching Highs

    Food waste is a not only a pain to those who cant afford food but also a factor that leads to the increase in waste as food makes 12% of trash according to world bank.
    1.Left overs that weren't sold by restaurant can be served to homeless people in the area.
    2.Homes should use refrigerators for foods that can be kept and eaten later.
    3.Schools can give out leftover food to serve as feed for animals on livestock farms.

  • helpful_technology | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    According to the World Economic survey in United States almost 30-40% food is wasted in United States just because people throw extra food in the garbage. That amounts to more than 20 pounds of food per person wasted each month.
    There are so many facts which shows that there is a direct link between food waste and global food crisis. To put this into perspective, if wasted food were a country it would be the third largest producer of carbon dioxide in the world after the U.S. and China. Taking small steps to reduce food waste, like eating leftovers and only buying the food that you need, helps fight global hunger and climate change. The amount if food waste in the world is equal to the decrease of half of the food crisis if given to the people who actually need it.

    We must not forget that food and garden waste can be a very valuable resource for increasing fertility of our soil.  As far as I'm concerned campost is one of the most valuable resources it grows food and improves soil by feeding soil life helping to capture carbon into farming land, scrap synthetic fertilizers and actually improve the soil quality by increasing the organic matter in the soil
    l do think organic farming will catch with the quality of fertilizer foods, the solution starts by understanding soil microbiology and mycology

    hotels are one of the places where food is wasted the most Because of the buffets that contain a large amount of surplus food To solve this problem, after people's lunch is finished, a staff is prepared to put the surplus food that has not been used within the complete prevention and hygiene measures into small boxes with the date of food production placed on these boxes so that people can do so. Checking the validity of food and then distributing it to charities. .

  • pioneering_effort | Àlímòsó Senior Grammar School | Nigeria 08 Nov 2022

    In Nigeria, there is high level of food crisis as a result of decline in food production. Food crisis is related with global issues, such as scarcity of resources used in providing food, population growth, climate change, unavailability of fertile lands for farming, and means of transportation.
    Unfortunately, most of the food need in Nigeria is produced by farmers who lack capital, skills, energy and other reliable factor to produce large quantity that will meet the requirement of the growing population. Food crisis in Nigeria is a current and serious problem.
    However, the only ways to solve global food crisis are reducing food waste, lmproving trade polices, resources should be provided and available for farmer to work towards defeating climate change, people should be encourage into farming venture.

    There are some tips that can be used to solve the problem of food waste in homes. 1-Plan your meals. 2-At the beginning of each week, look at your schedule and decide what are you going to eat, then make a shopping list. 3-Use the first-in, first-out method. 4-Bring the old items that need to be eaten first to the front of the fridge shelf and put the newly purchased items behind. 5-Donate extra food if you don't use your food before it's expiration date, give it to the food bank. 6-Make the most of your leftovers by bringing nice meal. As for reducing food waste in schools, Competitions are held so that when the surplus food that the school students don't want is dumped into fertilizer, they themselves produce from the leftovers and use it for their school garden plants. It's like turning trash into a beautiful garden

  • sensible_wombat | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 08 Nov 2022

    As I am from Pakistan, I would say that a lot of food is wasted here. People put much food in their dishes but are unable to finish it. They throw it away rather than giving it to someone who can't afford it. It is a trend to cook much food in the festivals, and as a result much food becomes extra and is wasted. We must overcome these situations so that we can reduce the wastage of food!!

  • accurate_wombat | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 09 Nov 2022

    To be honest, personally I think the best thing Nigeria, my country could do to reduce food waste is create better laws for example I think a law where a household is mandated by the law to cater for at least 2 less privileged people could work, it does not exactly have to be a household it could be a street or a particular block helping out the less privileged around them. It would be more reasonable. Countries could mandate restaurants that are thriving to serve particular meals to the less opportuned it could be breakfast, lunch, or dinner as long as those in need are being fed. We all know that according to some tests there are particular amounts of food that should be sufficient to the human body, so instead of giving people food that is much for them and is detrimental to their health why don't we just carry out those tests so that people can consume less and food will get around more equitbly.

  • cooperative_dolphin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    In my community there is a high rate of food waste because so many people decide to put a lot on their plates and yet they can't finish it. The family at home can reduce the quantities of food, that is, eat small amounts of food instead of placing large plates on the dining table. The family does not have to throw away any leftover food for another meal or use it to make a different dish and the family must share the large plates in restaurants. And food storage, the adoption of healthy and quick recipes that you can use with your family. Eat more vegetables and legumes once a week and avoid over-purchasing.
    What can governments, stores, schools and families do to reduce food waste? Take appropriate measures regarding the problem of food waste,
    And she can control This is by establishing strict policies and guidelines for people against food waste as well as setting up various TV or even radio programs calling for sufficient but not surplus food for each person and for the shops they deal with.

    _In my community, we use the leftover food to make natural fertilizer, or to feed it to the pets we raise at home, such as hen
    Governments can spread awareness by placing labels on food products, and spreading awareness directly to students in schools by designing a box in which they put leftover food for female students and feed it to the birds,And families put aside the leftover food and give it to those who own animals to raise them or reduce the amount of cooked food

    There are reckless people who throw incomplete food in the garbage. Do these people not know that the damage will return to them and that the food crisis will inflict them on them? I would like to say that we all have the responsibility to limit and reduce food waste without any resentment, but how can we limit and reduce food waste in
    1 Your community and country
    * Gently advise people not to waste food and teach them the importance of preserving food to benefit from it in the coming times.
    * It is necessary to publish pictures about the damage to people and the corruption that will spread in the world if food is wasted.
    2 Governments, stores and schools
    * Make school radios that include the title: Do not waste your food: and teach them that whoever wastes food will have a severe food crisis and may not have solutions.
    * Governments work severe penalties for those who waste food.
    * That the stores paste pictures in the shops showing the damage that will be caused to food waste.
    3 home
    * Store food properly.
    * Storing food in home refrigerators to keep it for a long time.
    * Cook the amount of food that suits the family

  • giving_mood | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    There are a lot of people wasting food and this is a big mistake that must be corrected to reduce food waste in society and the country. People must adhere to the following conditions to reduce food waste
    When people finish eating, they should not throw it away, but they should give it to the poor who cannot get food. We have helped preserve the animals as well, and people must be made aware not to waste food, because it is possible that he is deprived of food to scatter it, and because today he is able to obtain food, but he may not be able to obtain food on the second day because he did not appreciate the blessing of food and wasted it and must work The government and schools should educate people and write banners for them to refrain from wasting food, and the family should teach their children about food waste, because food is a great blessing that must be preserved. Food for birds to eat from, I love birds so much, so we will reduce food waste to be healthy

    Over a third of all food produced is wasted each year globally. Today, wasting food has been a very poor habit of people
    all around the world. So, to change this habit, it is necessary to reduce food waste. Instead of throwing away food, we can donate them to some needy ones. By doing so, we not only save food but also help people around us. We can use leftovers creatively. Next, we may be able to support reduction of food wastage by buying certain amount of food only. Many people have a habit of buying food though they don't need it which grows food wastage. Government can punish and make strict laws against wastage of food. In schools, students must be taught about the disadvantage of wasting food so that they learn to be more sensitive towards their food.

  • idealistic_song | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 09 Nov 2022

    Food waste has become a big habit world wide. In my community, I would first want to educate people the dangers/problems of food wastage so that they can also reduce on how much food they waste. People in the community should try and do the following to help reduce on food wastage;
    1. Buy ugly foods
    2.Use leftovers creatively
    3. Buy food that you only need
    4. Make shopping lists before going for shopping. Using these methods will help reduce food waste.

    Government, shops and schools can also sensitize more about the issues of food waste or they can give like monthly rewards to people who save the most food.

    I would reduce food waste by using leftovers creatively and making shopping lists before I go grocery shopping

    Part-1
    1- At community and country level awareness programs maybe run including seminars and programs highlighting the issue.
    2- Food containing products such as boxes and plates etc should be designed with graphics and text with highlight the hunger of others and also which give the subliminal message to the eater not to waste food (e.g.hungry and famine haunted children asking for food may be painted on the food box).
    3- The size of boxes and plates might be reduced which psychologically may affect extra food consumption or waste.
    4- add country and community level, the process of food storage should be encourage such as pickling and drying the food.
    Part-2
    At government level may a government give special incentries to the lower level for food saving such as for pickling,drying and packing etc.
    Government should use mass media and social media and other sources of communication to give message for food wastage reduction such as a powerful message can be recorded as a caller tune . Moreover, add should be circulated on social and electronic media where individuals saving food from wastage are presented as heroes.
    Restaurants can offer special discounts for those customer who consume all of their food.
    For packed food, a small extra plate with a box containing food maybe given and the people maybe trained so that they don't use the box but the small plate in which the food is bored according to the hunger and the left over clean food may be returned to the restaurant with later incentive to the customer.
    Measures of food waste detection should be added in the syllabus at school, college and university level studies.
    Mothers should be trained to identify the food need of every person at home through using charts and tables and prepare food plan accordingly. A carefully simple and scientific method of such a table or chart can be identified through researchers and after careful research a rubric or chart may be made and circulated among mothers.
    At schools, colleges ,universities and offices special awareness programs maybe organised to reduce food wastage.
    Food shortage and reduction of food wastage may be set as a trend and fashion.
    Special scholarships may be announced for food and nutritionist researchers to identify new, less costly and simple ways of food storage, as well as to social scientist for awareness and research programs targetting food wastage.
    Part-3
    I can reduce my own food wastage as well as I can raise awareness on these by educating my family, my friends and neighbours on this matter.
    Moreover, I can encourage the use of "FIFO" system i.e. "First in first out" at my home and ask my parents to arrange new food behind the old food items in fridge and kitchen.
    I can help my mother in identifying the food patterns of my family at home and thus prepare only necessary food.
    Finally, I may keep a list of food that is wasted in my home and at my school canteen and thus may help them identifying which and how much food is necessary.

    The world has developed now and everyone is dependent on technology, working in its fields, and using its tools, and many of us spend most of our hours on our mobile device, so to attract the world’s attention to solving this crisis, publish this topic On social media, spreading awareness hashtags and applications that gather people from all countries of the world to support each other and share the food that people are throwing now to people closer to their homes and more in need.

  • persuasive_trombone | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    The food crisis: It is about the scarcity of food in the world and the lack of the simplest foodstuffs and their collection. Accordingly, the causes of this crisis were searched, and it became clear that its causes are: Wars, population inflation, failure of agricultural projects, climate difference.


    In my opinion, inflation Population is the biggest cause of the famine crisis because it is: It is an increase in population They do not have enough food And population inflation poses a threat to the food crisis through:

    1. Increasing the demand for resources more than the supply: such as food, water and fuel.

    2. Malnutrition.

    3. Consuming large quantities of food without the need for it.


    To solve this problem, the state must: Awareness of the population in rationalizing the consumption of food Establishing and supporting agricultural projects to increase production.

    Food waste being a global issue needs to be addressed at every level e.g,household,community &country.If at country level the government sentsitize their masses through priny and electronic media that food waste causing greenhouse gas emissions which incurs environmental loss to the public due to highest carbon intensity.The collective efforts to buy less food as per need and sharing the left over with the needy can help us to reduce food waste.

    I am from pakistan nd here is trend on weddings to serve a lot of dishes as biryani qorma salads bar b q nd sweet dishes ...j canf ever understand is it possible for a signal person to eat all the dishes at the same time as one meal . People try to show off ...without considering drawbacks of this show off
    I would like to tell my community how one dish is suitable for weddings . In this way they will not waste any type of food .
    One more thing when people r in restaurants with their families they r with the mind set they r eating from restaurant nd they must order as they ve come with the mind set of celebration of any event ...so the order more than need . I would forbid such people to change their mind set
    If people r caught wasting food on restaurants shops in schools get must b fined some amount. This is the best thing any government could do to ban food wastage .
    I would personally not waste food only taking as much food in my plate as I ve need . I would not make a heap of food in my plate

  • glad_journalist | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 10 Nov 2022

    In London, lots of people take lots and lots of food then they eat but they get full so they don't eat all the food and they chuck the remains of the food they took and chuck them into the bin.

    People could try and reuse their leftovers for a new meal or try and eat the rest of that food in their next meal to reduce food waste.

  • crafty_quince | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 10 Nov 2022

    Food waste is a great curse on our society.In restaurants, instead of throwing away the excess food into garbage,one can ask them to parcel it up for takeaway.This has already been in practice in some places.These takeaways can be stored in refrigerators and can be used after some time.Also,the restaurants can give special coupons or vouchers to those who eat whatever is being served.At home, instead of cooking different items for each person,one can go in for a single dish.Also,the members of a family should sit together and have their meal together.I have personally seen the difference.There has not been much of food waste whenever we sat together for eating.Also if there is an excess,instead of throwing it away immediately,it can be stored for some time until it's not spoilt and can be used for eating.At schools,teachers can advice the students on not to waste foods.If there are some genuine reasons that the student is not able to finish off his/her food,they can bring into practice wherein the student can feed some stray dogs or animals.By this,the food also is not getting wasted at the same time the other creatures are being benefited.As an Individual, we can advice and insist people not to waste food by pointing out its importance and how a lot of people are suffering without food.

  • blithesome_engineer | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 10 Nov 2022

    Yes I do agree to the fact that people waste food I and my family have fallen victim of it. My dad's workers stay with my parents and when when my mum cooks she allows the boys to fetch for themselves and they fetch to their content and when they are done and okay they throw away the remaining. I and my mum felt like the only way to stop it was to limit the quantity they ate so as time went on they kept on throwing the food away I feel that the only way to stop them from wasting the food is by allowing them to starve for three days so that they can know how people who are hungry feel and also appreciate what is given to them.
    I personally can stop food wastage by; Creating a meal plan, Save and eat leftovers safely, Store food appropriately, Buy "ugly" foods like misshapen vegetables and bruised fruits, Compost, Use leftovers creatively and educate people who do not know that wasting food is not the best.

  • inspirational_forest | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 10 Nov 2022

    People who have enough food cam provide for the poor or people who can not provide for themselves. Like some people who know that they have enough sometimes cook and bring it for the poor.There are some people who cook in bulk and their leftovers instead of keeping it in their it for the next day or giving it to those that can not provide for themselves or giving it to the poor they will throw it away, there is this saying another mans trash is another mans useful resources those food that they are wasting they can give it to the poor. Those who have the money can build a restaurant that will be feeding the poor and those who can not provide for themselves and restaurants should be encourage to feed the poor and the remaining food left for the day the can give it out to those that can not provide for themselves instead of throwing them away.

  • beloved_seahorse | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

  • successful_crow | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 10 Nov 2022

    food waste.........In many countries today it is quite alarming today. Many people nowadays mostly like to fill their plates with food that they cant finish and throw the leftovers away because they dont find the use of keeping it. Some people lack planning when it comes to the intake of food. Just as how family planning is important in the world is the same way food planning is also important. During the COVID-19 pandemic i realized that 75% of families minimized they way they consumed food because of the lockdown and curfew. When they still bought in bulks they still minimized their intake because they knew that if the food finishes there will be hunger in the home.
    I feel people waste food because, either they feel they have sufficient money to buy more instead of taking leftovers or they dont know the price tags of what they consume. Some youths who stayed in their parents homes are guilty of wastage but when they left their parents homes, they realized the hardship of the world today.
    People should be encouraged by the government to store any leftover they have even though it is as little as a small bowl of ice cream or heat it up and give to the needy. They should also be enlightened about how planting of crops now and transporting them is hard due to climate change so that they can save for the days when there is insufficient food.

  • hardworking_theory | Lyons Hall Primary School E | United Kingdom 10 Nov 2022

    I would reduce food waste in different communities in my area by : Implementing people to finish food on there plate such as a mini prize like a gold star for the younger audience to encourage them to finish all of there food . If you’re eating in a buffet only take the portion that fills you up , because buffets have the most food waste out many restaurants .

  • perceptive_orange | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 10 Nov 2022

    What could you do to reduce food waste?
    we all have seen the amount of food getting wasted at weddings and functions. Instead of just throwing it away a bit limited amount should be made and the left should be distributed in NGOs to avoid wastage. If this continues, there is no way possible that a good amount of food will be available to the future generation. The food crisis is a very important issue as there are lacs of people who die daily of hunger contrasting to the people who waste a large amount of food daily.

  • majestic_piccolo | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 10 Nov 2022

    Families should cook enough food that can be consumed by the whole family and this way no food will be wasted, shops also have food which has an expiry date so if a certain food is not being bought the shop should donate it to the needy to prevent food wastage, schools should budget well for the food it will need to cater for the students per month and buy the right amount to prevent having extra useless food, governments should also donate some food to the needy.

    I would make sure the above is done to prevent food wastage.

  • analytical_sealion | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    In Pakistan ....I really want to mention this thing that we need to control extra food wastage ..as In my opinion whenever anyone take a meal they doesn't think how much we are taking .can we eat it or not?? People just filling their plates with a large amount of everything..they are just filling but they don't think that can we finish it ...the food that is overloaded.get waste ...this is the main reason we are wasting the food ..we are not thinking about the people that do not get food at least three times a day!!
    I can advice people to just take food in a proper amount no matter take it how many times..but in my opinion just think about them those doesn't get proper food for hunger

    There are some tips that can be used to solve the problem of food waste in homes. 1-Plan your meals. 2-At the beginning of each week, look at your schedule and decide what are you going to eat, then make a shopping list. 3-Use the first-in, first-out method. 4-Bring the old items that need to be eaten first to the front of the fridge shelf and put the newly purchased items behind. 5-Donate extra food if you don't use your food before it's expiration date, give it to the food bank. 6-Make the most of your leftovers by bringing nice meal. As for reducing food waste in schools, Competitions are held so that when the surplus food that the school students don't want is dumped into fertilizer, they themselves produce from the leftovers and use it for their school garden plants. It's like turning trash into a beautiful garden

    Food waste has become an enormous global problem,most people don't realise how much food they throw away everyday .In our rular community , most of the people are hungry but this is not because there is less food in the community but because of wasting the food so, to reduce the food waste we need to spread the awareness about the importance of food and donates extra food to those in needed.
    School can play vital role to reduce food waste by teaching to the students about the important to reduce the food waste . Similarly, government can encourage food waste reduction by federal agencies in their respective facilities and collaborate private industry to reduce food loss.
    we can create a meal plan, store the remaining food in refrigerator, preserve the food and raise awareness to reduce food waste in our community.

  • honest_cat | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 10 Nov 2022

    Food waste has become a normal thing in countries, especially among the wealthy who increase food and yet do not eat it, and this is something found in American films, Turkish series, and even Arabic. So we have to find a solution to these problems. There are people who do not have food. It is possible to store the food that increases and when it increases, they put it in boxes and donate to the poor, and it is also possible to reduce the quantities of food if the number of people is 5, we make food that suffices them no more. Stores can, if most of the items do not have to sell, reduce the purchase of these items. For example, there is processed corn, from which only a few are bought. Reducing corn.

    The problem of food waste has become a terrible problem that threatens the lives of many, and this is not only a waste of food, but a waste of human energies and harvesting processes!... I thought and found that we can reduce it with very simple solutions that differentiate with others. .
    So we can reduce food waste by eating enough food and not having to eat too much

    We can turn the wasted food into a natural fertilizer for plants or reuse the food for another meal, for example, my mother prepared a meal (beans with rice) for lunch and the rice has increased. So my mother had to put the extra rice in the fridge.. She used it the next day to make another meal that had rice in its ingredients. Thus, I found that my mother had contributed to reducing the amount of food wasted.

    Also, governments should impose penalties on those who waste food or fine supermarket owners.... Technology can also be provided to solve the problem... We should be alerted to anyone who has wasted food.. I think this may scare people from wasting food.

    It remains the responsibility of the parents, so they can educate their children about the importance of food in our lives... as well as the risks that result from losing it in a simple and beautiful way that yearns for children... They also have to shop intelligently and wisely and buy the appropriate needs for the number of family members without extravagance or miserliness

    It is very important to ensure the safety of wasted food so that we do not get food poisoning.

  • beloved_seahorse | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    Food wastage means throuing food that was more than our need it means you were blessed enough to have extra food think for a while why you wre blessed by allah almighty ? Is this blessing of food for throuing ? Or for sharing all of us are answerablw before God for our actions . If the trenings of parents and teachers are strong ,in my opinion nobody dare to waste food . Parents should themselves share food with neighbours , relativesand frnds ,infront of their children till 2050 we will have to learn compaission with humainty .goverments should take strick actions against p3ople throuing food . For example same as done with trafic law breakers .our leaders should organize seminers for public awreness about " how criminal it is to waste food ?

  • accomplished_frog | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    How to reduce food waste in your communities and countries?
    First we must work
    A study between the percentage of production and the percentage of consumption in the agricultural field and the economy, where there is no surplus of materials that are not consumed
    Recycle some products before they go bad
    The government imposes fines on food waste, which reduces food waste in shops (food stores) or restaurants.

    if you look at the facts the amount of food in the world is clearly enough to feed the whole world but one of the main contributors is the fact that so much food is thrown after a meal if you can't finish all of it instead of just disposing it you should preserve it in a freezer or maybe just eat the rest despite how full you are ,because every five minutes 3.5 million adults or children die from starvation (hunger)so if we continue to live this way not only people will be dying but it will be our fault and a lot of us are privileged just to be using a piece of technology when we see people out their not even having the basic necessity of food.I hope this message will get through to the peoples hearts reading to inspire people and make a change.(by yours truly.)

    We cannot overlook the phenomenon of food waste around the world. It is a problem and every problem has a solution. Although we cannot completely eliminate this phenomenon, we can limit its damage. There are many ways to reduce it. For example, we can take advantage of food waste and convert it into organic fertilizer and use it by growing vegetables and fruits. By doing so, we have produced food from leftover food. It is also possible to take advantage of leftover food in feeding animals, and thus we have fully benefited from it.

    At the end of the day a small company take this bread, dried and grind it. Then they add some other nutritional supplement to get the final product ( chicken feed).
    This project not only leaves no single bite

    I also would educate the uneducated about the problems of wasting food because this leads food shortage in the world.
    Different families should cook enough food that the family finishes and this prevents food shortage. This also leads to a waste free world.
    Shops, supermarkets and food stores should check food expiry dates and then donate the food to the needy.

    What I can do to reduce food waste is to tell kids to not get lunch food if they're not going to eat it, because that's a waste of it. I also would tell them to pick what they like so they wouldn't waste it. I also would tell them to pick out things they like so that they would eat it instead of throwing it away and wasting it. I also would tell them to pick a common vegetable and fruit that they like and eat on a basis so that they would have good nutrients in their system. Some things the government can do to reduce food waste is, make a commercial about how food is being wasted and how it is a bad thing for the community. some things shops can do to reduce food waste is, telling the customers by the things they like so that they won't waste a lot of things. Some things schools can do to reduce food waste is make things that students mostly pick out to eat instead of making things kids don't get. some things families can do to reduce food waste is, get things that they would eat and let kids pick out what they would eat and let them pick out vegetables and fruit that they like.

  • eager_atom | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 12 Nov 2022

    Hello.

    • There are many people who waste food in my country and all countries as well. Food waste in societies can be reduced by making a small amount of food that is sufficient for individuals for a meal only and not more.

    • Schools and governments can work to give advice to stores and food factories to make products according to the size of one meal only and not more than that, where it is weighed in kilos so that people take the right amount of products.

    • I can work on giving people advice to reduce food waste by making specific quantities of food that are sufficient for everyone. If the meals increase, they do not waste it, but rather give it to people who need it. I want you to remember that every morsel of food you waste will be held accountable for it.

    Thank you.

    Reducing food loss and waste is essential in a world where millions of people go hungry every day .We know that wasting food is bad for the environment and is costing you money.

    Making a few small changes to how you shop, store and cook your food can make a huge difference and will reduce how much food you waste, and save you money at the same time.
    Eat your leftovers
    Try to convert small amounts of leftovers into a meal.
    Plan your meals, make a list
    By knowing exactly what your family will be eating for the coming meals, you’ll be able to buy only the food you need.
    By going to the supermarket more regularly, you can buy fresh produce in smaller quantities which means it will be fresher for when you eat it.
    If you can’t eat it, give it to someone who can consume it
    Maybe you have leftover birthday cake, or a bottle of milk you’re not going to use before you go on holiday,
    there are other places that you can donate food.
    Pickling, drying, canning, fermenting, freezing and curing are all methods you can use to make food last longer, thus reducing waste.

    Government can make policies and schemes to reduce food waste.
    By implementing new technologies
    By creating awareness among people to reduce food waste .

    By educating the uneducated and they can understand the problem of food waste

    Food is the most essential need in life of the organism. Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support and energy to an organism. Every organism needs energy to carry on with the process of living which comes from food. It is really important to now the importance of food by every individual. But in the context of today's society, people have started to waste food and also not understand the importance of food. In my opinion the best option to stop food waste is to take the enough food. Also you need to aware people about how the future is going to be when you are going to waste the food, what you need to understand is you are going go through the obstacle when you are going to waste or throw the food today. When you are going to waste food you are going to suffer for a coin tomorrow, so you need to think twice before you waste the food.
    Government also plays a vital role to stop the wastage of food in the society also the country. Government should introduce schemes to remove poverty as poverty is the root cause for all evils related from finance to hunger. It has to save the food in refrigerated warehouses in order to help the people when there is a shortage of food during natural calamities or in emergency situation. Government should encourage people to not waste food by various awareness programs and showing them the problems faced by wasting food. The government can make such rules and regulations as well as the one that distributing the foods which are leftovers or not able to be completed to beggars which could be the best solution to stop the wastage of food.
    The things I could do to stop the wastage of food is I need to own the habits of not wasting a single piece of food by me so what I think is others especially the young ones are going to learn not to waste the food. I need to cook the enough food which can be eaten without wasting them. The main thing what I can do is to acknowledge everybody by sharing the importance of food and also the demerits of wasting food.

    1_ Make a regular shopping list that includes the most important foods.
    2 _ Buying foods well before their expiry date

    4_ Donate food that is superfluous.
    5_ Converting food waste into organic fertilizer
    * For governments, schools, etc

    How to reduce the amount of food waste
    Reduce the amount of food you cook and keep it for a second meal. I buy what I need. Don't buy anything you don't like. Donate food instead of wasting it.

  • committed_tsunami | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 15 Nov 2022

    To reduce food waste
    * Buy and eat when needed.
    * Do not spend. This is one of the main causes of food waste.
    * Eat your food according to the situation.
    * Don't throw away your leftovers. Leftover foods do not mean spoiled foods.
    * Manage to eat what you have.




    The government can help reduce food waste by organizing community talks to educate people on how to preserve their food for example by smoking, salting, re-marinating and diversifying such as fish.

  • enthusiastic_synthesizer | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 15 Nov 2022

    i will simply educate people on the effects of food wastage .And also i can tell some people an alternative to wasting food. some times some people cannot finish their food so the dispose of it . people can either eat it or convert it. you can convert food to fertilizer for plants or food for animals.no food goes to waste it can either be consumed or recycled.

  • composed_cloud | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 16 Nov 2022

    In our societies in general, a lot of food is wasted. I think that the authorities or associations should prepare awareness campaigns to educate people about the importance of ordering food according to their needs, to prevent throwing away the remaining food while there are others in the same community who sleep hungry. Also I have a plan for the remaining food,so it can be collected and sent to zoos, so the animals feed on it instead of spoiling it.

    In my opinion, food waste is a global problem, and it must be reduced. I will try to answer the questions in my own way.
    1 How would you reduce food waste in your communities and countries?
    In my society and in many societies, there is this problem and it can be solved. For example, setting up a center for those who waste food and putting edible food (that is not spoiled) there instead of throwing it in the garbage, and the center gives it to the poor.
    2 What can governments, shops, schools and families do
    to reduce food waste?
    3 What could you do to reduce food waste? I will do everything in my power, for example, I will try to educate my friends and encourage those who waste food with the idea of ​​​​putting excess food in the center, and I hope that the idea will succeed and we will reduce food waste.

    Food waste has become a dangerous habit: buying more than we need in supermarkets, letting fruits and vegetables spoil at home, or ordering more than we can eat in restaurants.

    Food waste is one of the most common issues in various countries of the world. As this problem topped the first concerns of the United Nations due to its negative repercussions environmentally, socially and economically. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the world's population wastes a third of food destined for human consumption, and the amount of food wasted globally is estimated at about 1.3 billion tons annually, with a value of $980 billion.

    We could reduce food waste by using a recycling bin every day because this helps reduce food waste and plastic waste at the same time, which is extra good for our planet. Our communities and countries can share food with hunger children and adults out there in places like Afghanistan, Pakistan and Africa.

  • courageous_duck | St. Andrew Kaggwa Gombe High school | Uganda 18 Nov 2022

    I would advice schools, restaurants among others who cook food in large quantities that incase it is to remain, they should distribute it to the homeless or those who lack what to eat and also bakeries since they also have a lot of damaged cookies, bread, cakes e.t.c. I also advice families to learn how to start cooking food that is enough for them to avoid food waste and also factories that produce eatables and they know that they are about to expire that they should distribute them before they go to waste and so should the government.

    One of the major source of food waste is restaurants. People often order excess and do not eat what they ordered. This is a huge source of food waste. There are many people who are willing to donate food but they cannot find a proper way to do it. Thus to solve this we can setup food ATMs in localities where people can donate as much food they want. Deprived people can be given cards by the government with which they can redeem the food from the ATMs free of cost and also ensure that the donated food does not get used up by those people who are not in need. Restaurants should encourage buffet system more than the A-la-carte system as it reduces food waste. Restaurants can also offer discounts to the guests for not their food. Another thing which the government should do is to build dams and resoirvers to control floods. Floods are very common in India and every year leads to huge crop waste. India is a climatically diverse country. When one region faces flood, another region faces drought. Thus efforts should be made to link the rivers so as to keep the level of water same throughout the country.

  • curious_skill | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 18 Nov 2022

    In order to solve such a problem, humanitarian organisations should secure food for the people who really need . For example by distributing rations. Moreover, some organisations can lead to awareness campaigns in order to aware people about the need of other people to some food and if there is any possibility to share.

    Food waste is one of the main reasons for hunger and if this obstacle is solved we will get over the largest part of hunger crisis.I believe as individulas that we can have an important role in decreasing the food waste.First , we can plan for our food menu before going to the shops as if you go to the grocery store without a list,it will end up buying too many things that you don't need.I think also labeling the food that is in our fridges with expiry dates so that you can organise the consumption of food .As Donation has important role in solving the food shortage , we can donate our leftovers instead of throwing them away. Also,instead of purchasing new ingredients for lunch, we can consume the previous day meals. We also can donate our food that we won't use to the restaurants so that they can give it to the people who are in need. What about creating a blog on social media for each community so that the residents can share their ideas about ways to reduce food waste and people will be strongly motivated to do the same? We can also use glass containers for storing food because they help in storing food in a good case for a long time.I think people especially young people can volunteer in organizations for turning leftovers to meals for poor people.
    Governments should raise people's awareness of the importance of food and how we can reduce portions sizes that are very huge at buffets and restaurants , for example they can take measures for the restaurants and hotels to make trays that are less-sized so that people can not fill trays with too much food with they won't be able to finish .Mayors can also produce fridges for each community so that people can store their leftovers in them and then are used in donations.Countries can also use smart technology to track food consumption and then avoid food overproduction because when you measure something, you can manage it. Countries can build stores for selling food waste.
    Schools have an important role in raising the awareness of the students of this problem as education has a huge influence on students way of thinking. They can also involve students to find solutions for food waste and apply these solutions in their homes to motivate their parents to do the same. They can encourage students who really participate in solving this problem by honoring with certificates and gifts .Students can take part in distributing their school cafeterias on people who are in need. There is a subject at schools called Home Economics and we can use it in teaching children gardening, cooking and money management. If children learn how to cook ,grow food and manage money, they will help reduce food waste and they will be careful at consuming food and thus the next generations will realize the consequences of this problem. Schools can add new recipes to the school menu and create a committee of students to test the taste of the new food to give feedback on food acceptability for students.
    Shops and supermarkets should train their staff on food hygiene and food safety to reduce food loss. The most famous chains can hold a campaign for donating food to those who need it and they will be an idol to the other shops to track the same way .They also can offer a training for other supermarkets staff to train them on food safety as they are professional in this.Also they can have a deal with restaurants to turn unwanted food items into meals for people in need.Hypermarkets can provide the food banks and charity organisations with unsold ingredients .
    Food waste is a global problem and we all need to unite as developing and developed countries, as communities,as individuals to get over this problem .

    To reduce the waste of food, first solution , we prepare sufficient quantities of food for us and enough food for us, which our body needs in case if there is excess food left, we can put it in the refrigerator and eat it when we are hungry . Also, we can donate food. There are many people in need who need food also. Fertilizer for plants or to put it for animals in our surroundings

    There's a big wasting of food in all the world, the world's population has becomes 8 billion and if at least one of every 100 person waste food It would be a big disaster. In my opinion I think that families should cook food in a specific way like cooking in a small quantity not a big quantity that the rest will be thrown

  • romantic_elderberry | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 20 Nov 2022

    I agree because...
    must remember that there are poor people who do not find food to satisfy them, and that they need money that satisfies their hunger. Countries must reduce these famines by distributing food and money to everyone who needs it, and that the rich help the poor, even with a little.

    I think it's not possible to get rid of food waste completely, but I think people can benefit from advice that helps them reduce food waste. Anyone who is aware of this problem should educate the uneducated through campaigns to reduce this phenomenon, and also if people serve more of their food to those who have nothing to eat, someone will benefit from it, rather than throwing it in the trash.

  • receptive_clam | Àlímòsó Senior Grammar School | Nigeria 21 Nov 2022

    Recognition to the fact that there are lots and lots of people who can't provide for themselves is one of the major reason why we need to fight against food scarcity in our environment. There are lots of ways we can reduce food wastage they include :. 1) Reintroduceing of old methods of preservation like " sun drying, warming of the remainders of food and lot more". 2) Launching of campaigns against food wastage which can help reduce global food crisis . 3) We can start from our selves by planting our food instead of increasing food scarcity in our environment . 4) We can also help ourselves by giving out food to thepoor instead of wasting of the food .
    Like on of my co-student said that "The Waste for us is other People's Meal. Pls let help to stop global food crisis instead of going about blaming the government the change start from YOU.

    In my opinion, recycling food and using it as a natural fertilizer is the most appropriate way to reduce the waste of natural food at home, after composting methods. I have How to make various types of compost from food waste

    First: Banana peel fertilizer Method:

    The ideal way is to put the banana peels to dry in the air or under the sun, then they are ground and a black powder is produced that is well distributed around the soil.

    Another method is to bury the banana peel inside the soil for 21 days, until it decomposes and the soil becomes rich in compost.

    Another method is to put banana peels in a container and fill it with water and leave it for several days, then use this water to irrigate the plant.

    Do not put the banana peel on the soil like this, but it is better to follow one of the previous methods, because leaving it like this makes mold appear quickly.In my opinion, awareness should be spread because everyone in society affects the other in one way or another. They should be made aware of the seriousness of food waste. On the environmental and health character in the world

    Throwing tons of food while others are sleeping hungry is a real crime.
    I have many ideas about reusing food, so we can put small plastic rooms in the streets like the phone rooms on the roads, but they contain shelves in which people can put the food left over from them that is edible, so the poor who are unable to buy food come and take what they need from food, this method that we have found for people an alternative to throwing pilgrimages, and we have provided food for the poor people.
    As for us, in our house, it is forbidden to throw the remaining food in the garbage. But rather we put two large containers in the kitchen. In the first one, we put all the remaining food, even the leftover tomatoes and cucumbers, and we take it to the animals, such as chickens that feed on it.
    In the second container, we put peels like lemon and citrus fruits peels that chickens do not eat, so we put them in a specific place on the soil to ferment, so that it becomes one of the most fertile types of soil, which this soil is better suited for cultivation.

    The truth is that hunger is one of the catastrophic issues in our lives. Hunger is the worst feeling a person can feel, and the biggest cause of that is poverty, which has become very dominant in our countries, for example: Lebanon, Africa, or some other economically collapsed countries, but we as humans can limit From the issue of hunger and food waste, on the level of restaurants, we can collect leftovers and distribute them to the needy and the homeless, and we can also benefit from that in our homes. Secondly, on the school level, parents can send the child’s need for food. Those who are unable to bring it, and we can also establish charities that deal with collecting leftover food from homes and setting up distribution centers for everyone in need to get it. This is on the human level, but on the other hand, food can be used to manufacture fertilizers and soil.

  • honest_moon | Clapham Manor Primary School B | United Kingdom 23 Nov 2022

    in my opinion i think we could start by reducing food waste because people around the are hungry and they are dying from starvation. we can reduce the wastage in our country by recycling and saving food for later if you can't eat all of it.
    on television there should be ads or programmes on why it is important to eat all of your food and what happens to people all around the world that have no food, no water and more.
    we could even start now by planting crops and giving them to the people that die from no food or water/ starvation and dyhydration.
    World leaders such as the government should help the people around the world who aren't as fortunate as us by shipping or trading them some food and water by boat.
    Schools, shops and families could reduce food waste by giving children a resonable amount to eat so they don't get full and waste the rest of their food on their plate. Shops can reduce food waste by not buying food that expire in like two days because then that food will be wasted and then thrown in the bin.

    Wasted food is a major source of toxic greenhouse gas emissions. Most of the wasted food rots in landfills and emits methane gas resulting from decomposition. This gas has the potential to cause global warming, which is equivalent to 21 times the potential of carbon dioxide. Governments must educate people by giving them such This information is carried out through campaigns, or the school can also play this role.
    The school is the second strong influence on students after their parents. It can draw the attention of students and students when they return home will tell their parents.
    Also, governments and schools can give another idea, which is that instead By disposing of food waste, everyone can turn it into compost. This way, nutrients will be in the soil, and carbon emissions are reduced. Families should prevent food waste by planning the meal in advance and buying only the necessary ingredients, or donate food. For example, everyone can share his meal with his neighbors and the people around him.

    Food wastage is a very serious problem here in my country. It is one major factor that hinders the development of my country as it is poorly ranked in the world. Food wastage can be solved by many ways. It can be stopped by proper conservation or storage of foods. Here in my country, we are affected by rats and other animals that creep on the ground and these animals love to eat through bags of food. I believe that in houses they should make shelves which are at least 5cm above the ground which can prevent rupturing of bags containing food. I believe that if this is done, food wastage can be stopped, and it would reduce the rate of pollution

    If am to tackle this problem I'll do it in two ways .
    first I'll educate my community on the impact of their wastage . I'll tell the amount of nutrients the have wasted by just throwing a plate of beans. I'll tell them and probably show them people that will be grateful if the ate once a day , but unfortunately the can't. the second way is I'll devise means in which food can be sufficiently utilized .food can either be eaten , recycled or converted.it can be eaten by someone who needs it or by an animal eg pig . It can be recycled into things like water . and it can be converted into things like manure. hence my ideas can solve not only hunger but also pollution.

This cheat day includes my favourite food for lunch. But, there was a condition which was, I would get a cheat day only if I finish my lunch every day. Days passed by and when I recorded the amount of waste food it was comparatively less than before.

Families must cook enough food that can be consumed by all family members, in this way no food will be wasted, and stores have food that has an expiration date, so if a certain food is not purchased, the store must donate it to the needy to prevent it from being wasted Food, schools should budget well for the food they need to meet the needs of the students per month and buy the right amount to prevent having extra useless food, governments should also donate some of the food to the needy.

    Food waste can be reduced by linking a social contract with the head of state to a sequence. First, it can be reduced by posting banners and placing technological food boxes in the streets (not throwing them anywhere) to keep them from damage and giving food to the poor to reduce the problem of hunger that cannot be overcome. They must not provide any method of moisture that provides mold, and schools and stores must not consume huge quantities of food to prevent its waste, which results in food waste, air pollution and climate change that affects us negatively.

    It is really important to understand the importance of food, food is one of the most essential part of our basic needs. There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet. Yet as many as 828 million people still go hungry. We all need to know how to save the food and stop the foods from getting waste. Some of the ideas we can apply to stop the wastage of food or reduce wasting food are:Buy, order and cook only what you can finish. When eating out, order only what you can finish,Turn leftovers into new dishes. Instead of throwing away your leftovers, turn them into tasty new dishes,Donate your excess food, educate the uneducated on the dangers of wasting food like you may have some left overs and instead of keeping them for the mere future to eat and in this way you won't have to spend any coin, government members should make rules of fines on people who waste food and in this way food waste would be limited. Save and eat leftovers safely, Avoid buying too much and mainly understand the importance of food.

    Enough food is prepared to feed each person on the earth today but the only problem is that distribution is not equal everywhere.
    Food waste has been a very serious topic to talk on. People who have more food just throw it away as it is nothing for them but they forget that there are some stomachs that are empty since days. Many countries either developed, underdeveloped, or developing; they all are facing many problems regarding to food waste.
    There is always solution to problem thus, there are ways to minimize food waste as well. Every citizen of that country or society has equal responsibility towards management of food. Government, schools, families and we ourselves also can work on this topic.
    Talking about my community, here, garbage is separated into two containers. One for degradable and other for non-degradable wastes. Degradable wastes such as peel of fruits and vegetables and some leftovers are converted into fertilizers and non-degradable wastes such as plastic items like plates of weddings and empty bottles are sent to recycling store where new things are made with it. In this way government makes garbage truck take away the garbage in Eco-friendly way. In this process, we not only manage food but also manage unnecessary materials harmful to environment. We then later by ourselves collect all the eatable but expired foods to give to animals/pets and non-expired foods to give to beggars. In our society/community we all take care about wastage of food. In schools as well, students are not allowed to throw food or extra assignment which makes students scare about work and prevent food waste. Talking about restaurants, no food waste or extra bill.
    Here every spot has it's own rule which makes people take only how much they want. We all here live in a healthy environment. Still the thing that is lacking is awareness where people unknown about importance of food are not being made aware.
    Therefore, I can and I will make people aware about importance of food and how prevention of food waste is helpful.
    Also, I will aware people to make sure that every restaurants, schools, shops and homes are managing their waste in one way or other.
    Hence, we must understand that it's about doing more with less, and elevating all food to its highest and best use without spending any coin. Food items that does not goes to human consumption, are processed which have a positive impact on the environment.

    To reduce food waste in the community we can start more food banks. Throughout the world we can plant more crops. We could also trade more goods around the world.

    We can reduce food waste in the community by encouraging everyone to cook only the amount of food they want to eat. We can also reduce the waste of food by teaching students at school the importance of food and show them how other people suffer from hunger.

    At my home, we make use of leftovers to make new and tasty dishes. Usually, when we cook pulses and a small part of them is left, we use the leftover pulses to make a nutritious dough for making 'roti'. And when we have hard pieces of bread left, we crush the pieces and make a powder which we later use to make dishes crispy, like cutlets. Popular dishes like sushis are also made from leftover fish. There are also many dishes we can make out of leftover rice. This way we can reuse our leftovers and reduce wastage. To bring change in our communities, we need to be the change and this is a simple yet good step to start with.

    What could you do?How would you reduce food waste in your communities and countries?

    Well, for starters, we could stop wasting food by giving the remains to people who are starving or homeless.Donating food for charity is also good.Also,freezing the food you buy from grocery stores can help people save money.If you freeze the food you buy,it can help you avoid buying food you already have.

    All foods have expiration dates,so people should eat the food before it expires.
    There are some small businesses that encourage people to stop wasting food,if we start to make small businesses popular or start making our own small businesses we can probably convince at least a few people to stop food waste.
    my family always reminds me about food waste.wasting food is no joke since,for example,Angola.Angola is a country of southern africa,and there's a lot of food scarcity there.According to an article it states,"Angola is currently facing its most severe drought in the last 40 years, directly impacting the food security of 1.58 million people in the country's southern provinces.".Angola is still facing food scarcity to this day and we should do something about it.
    there are so many countries that face food scarcity and us people are wasting food not knowing the consequences.

    We should educate people about the dangers and consequences of food waste.

    Aside from budgeting for meals and making sure food is served so that one can finish it, what other way can people at home try to reduce food waste. This is what I came up with.

    1) Many people do not know that leftovers can be used to prepare other meals. Some people throw leftovers away, thinking that they are useless. There are many new and different foods one can make from leftovers and the food will still be healthy. For example, when there are leftover boiled potatoes, people throw them away thinking that nothing new can be made from them but this is not the case. One can cut it into circles, fry it, make it as a snack, and eat it instead of throwing it away and wasting it. Food must be preserved

    2) Perishable foods, fruits and spices should be preserved so that they last longer


    3) When restaurants find out that foods are approaching the date when they can no longer be sold and the food is still excess, they should consider giving the food to people who have no food to eat because the majority of food is thrown out from supermarkets and ends up in landfills Waste and that also contributes to waste, so if supermarkets don't want food, they should give it to people who want it.

    4)I'm going to make it plain that leftovers shouldn't be in the trash. I will discourage stocking up on food. Donations and food sharing must be highly encouraged in order to achieve Zero Hunger programmes. Promote a kitchen garden and organic foods to support healthy eating.
