    Actually the world has a great potential to feed everyone out there . The world population has almost reached 8 billion .

    Thats what i always think when someone asks me for a solution for food crisis "why can't we just share "

    On one hand countries like USA, UK ,Germany and many more developed countries have more than enough food and alot of it is wasted in restaurants and even houses .
    On the contrary countries like Somalia ,South Sudan and Ethiopia are unable to provide staple ingredients to their population.
    Reason:
    ## Shelf life :

    Many products can't be sent all around the world due to their shelf life or storage problem.

    ## political reason :

    I don't know much about politics bit i am quite sure that they play a important role .
    (If any one has a opinion on that please share with me )

    ## food waste :

    Food waste is the one of the most difficult waste to deal with .on daily basis a ton of food is wasted if we take precautionary measures on an individual level this may help but most importantly government should definitely do something to deal with this waste in an ethical manner .


    The waste for us may be life saving for others

    Sharing could be ok but countries are not ready to put in a surplus budget to feed other nations people this could put them in great economic depression that's is why platforms like WORLD FOOD PROGRAM are put in place so that the producing country doesn't loose out on its economy. If countries were to share, what they will share will be of low quantity or they will share those products of low quality which would result into diseases to those consuming the food. So pools like the World food Program do buy the food and give it out so contributing to these program could actually be sharing. but i disagree on a nation giving out food to other nation since it can also cause terrorist attacks

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

    The issue is that not everyone would want to share what they have struggled and worked hard for with others . The other problem would be that the world economy might end up dropping because apart from wanting to have luxurious and nice thing most people around the world work for food so if food was free most people might end up reducing the amount of work the do or completely stop working which would affect the rate of production of things.

    There are very many food crises around the world at the present time. One billion and one hundred million people, equivalent to 1/6 of the world, suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Seven million children in the world die annually due to hunger, due to the strong rise in the prices of raw materials, which led to the rise in food prices. The demand for purchasing food decreased, and famines spread, and these are some of the reasons that affect food crises such as conflicts and the lack of equitable sharing of food, as well as climate change, so we must all cooperate with each other to solve these problems, even if at the lowest costs and the least work, this will make a big difference, such as enhancing local food production, which is like intensifying agriculture and taking care of crops, this contributes to food production. It reduces famines and also educates generations about the dangers of famine, this will increase awareness among the people and the responsible persons will begin to take appropriate measures to reduce famines. Also, the state must provide job opportunities, as work reduces the proportion of famines by a large percentage due to the increase of income and increases economic activity in the state. That is why we must all unite and cooperate with the individual and the state in order for the individual and the state to live. The individual has a decent life without poverty or famine.

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

    I think sharing food across the boundaries of a country is not very easy ... A country must be in good terms with others to get such help...
    Also they should use and store the given food supplies in better way.. otherwise its huge portion will be perished

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

    sharing of food among nations and countries is a big issue due to different reasons. every country
    has its own economic interests . food producing countries expect a good amount from consumer countries for their production. this aspect depends on their political and trade policies and relations . every country tries to save , increase and maintain their foreign exchange reserves during their trade with foreign country but political interests and other benifits are also kept in view. That's why sharing of food on international level becomes difficult

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

    sharing of food on on individual level is a maater of sympathy and generosity while on national and international level it is the matter of business and trade profits .
    onindividual level people can share food with others if they have enough food for themselves which is difficult for everyone because everyone has not enough resources and most of world populatiin is living under the line of poverty.
    On national and international level, the sharing of food is done only on the basis of earning wealth and foreingn exchange . Countries and nations share food items without cost only when another country is in a disaster.

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

    Initially, I would like to state that food sharing is way complicated than it seems. We can visualize the increasing raise in hunger rate. Even though there is enough food for whole world to eat till it's full.
    In my opinion the reasons of not sharing food are;
    1- Low level of morality of rich people
    2- Class difference
    3- Irresponsible use of resources

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

    We can't share food with others because we are selfish. We always see our benefits.
    As individuals we always demand reward or price against every grain of food. Same is the case with countries. Every country wants to earn against it's products . When food is exported to other countries the cost of food items is increased due to shipping expenses and cost of labour . Poor people of poor countries can't afford expensive food to satisfy their hunger.
    Poor countries are suffering from many problems which hinder their progress in production of food as well as progress in economy.
    Here the role of world leaders becomes more vital because they have take bold decisions for the import and export of food without taxes on low and subsidized labour cost. But again conflicts of different nature restrict them to do so.

  • introspective_economics | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 05 Nov 2022

    It is largely said sharing is caring . Well! we do take it in a serious notion however, everyone is always selfish for some necessity or the other .
    Some do have a little food to consume each day but are selfish to share with any individual foreign to them cause they too have small quantity of it themselves. They have to feed their children and parents too.
    Then comes the families who have a vast variety on their table each day however not everybody believe in share food.
    Food is all what is the reason for fights and conflicts. That is unequally gathered and stored by different groups in the society

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

    There is enough food in the world for nobody to go hunger. But due to lack of administration and selfishness, people do not want to share their food. Actually, we don't respect humanity. Despite the world is facing hunger, we only care about ourselves. We want to eat to our fill.
    Only if we put ourselves in that situation, we can understand what hunger truly means.

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

    In the world there is enough food to feed all over the world. But the reasons for refusing to share the food consists of many reasons:
    1. Developed countries are dominant over developing and under developed countries. They make those countries dependent on them.
    2. The person who is rich has more food but they waste it a lot and often complain that the quality of food is not good. But on the other hand, the poor are not able to afford to eat three times a day.
    3. Due to export and import policies of various countries. Some countries have imposed ban on trade with a particular country for various reasons.
    4. Rising the prices of food intentionally and creating artificial scarcity makes the poor people to starve.
    5. Even politics has contribution in these issues. Socioeconomic conflicts, government instability, militarism and corruption are some of the contributions to food insecurity.

    I think that we can share food to others if there is an excess or if we don't like a particular food. If each and every people in the world share their food with others, the poor would be able to get food three times a day and getting food regularly is the key to get out of poverty.

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

    I belongs to Pakistan. The main reason that we cannot share the food with other countries is conflict due to conflict we cannot share the food with other countries. It want that the quantity of food of one country should be more while the quantity of food of other country should be less. If the quantity of food production of both countries are equal then food cannot be share.

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

    There are mainly three reasons for why this can't work out as good as it many sound in theory.
    1.Expiration
    Food has a duration period of being safe to consumed after this period it is no longer safe most of the food that goes to waste is expired or spoil.
    2.Economic reason.
    People who produce food on large scale employ workers those workers have families also the owner of the farm has a family and how shall the workers on the farms be paid if food is just given out for free?
    3. Government
    Government money have tried to support sharing by giving businesses that donate tax cuts but still that is't enough governments should also give financial support to Non Government charities.

  • vivacious_chemistry | Cheam Park Farm Primary | United Kingdom 05 Nov 2022

    In my opinion, people have enough food to keep everyone healthy and full.

    Why can't we just share?

    Countries like USA, UK etc have more than enough food to feed everyone and make nobody hungry but (the food) is shared unequally. This is because some people are selfish, greedy and don't think about anyone else but themselves. A lot of food is wasted in restaurants and even in homes. Nobody (only some people) think about how the food they throw out on a daily basis could be a hungry person's meal or even last them the day.

    Personally, I think restaurants should keep the food that is left over and give it to the poor/homeless. Normal people should, instead of throwing food away, should also either give to charity, homeless or homeless shelters. Rich or wealthy people can spend some of their money to give to the homeless and charities.

    This was my opinion. Thank you.

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

    there is enough food indeed but i also wounder why we cannot share.In the world were we are not equal like our fingers were some fingers are longer than the others .this is the same way the world is just not fair with some people, some people are rich and others are poor. I cannot just blame the rich for not sharing with the poor because i think they cannot share with them due to the following reasons;
    *Some foods are perishable like tomatoes,fish,bread whivh makes it very hard to transport them from one country to another.
    *Some countries cannot share because their selfish.they just dont waant to share with others

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

    yes people cannot share because they find it difficult to share some kinds of foods to people since when they give them those foods they willnot grow in their land forexample in the sahara desert areas were their soils are infertile to grow some kinds of food matooke,sweetpotatoes,yams,rice and many others

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

    For sure why not share that's a very nice question.
    Indeed if we used to share with others we wouldn't probably even know the term food crisis because among the countries we all know that they are indeed countries that can feed the whole world due to their advanced agricultural industries and high development.
    But rather instead the real question is What is refusing us to share this food?

    Answer to the Question
    I probably think that one of the reasons why this food can't be shared is because these developed countries that could help others lack unity like Russia and Ukraine we all know those two countries can do a lot of great things for this world if they actually cooperate rather than fight, because the actual thing is that one country alone can't really supply all the people with food so this would require some help by more developed countries like USA,UK and other countries in that range. If these countries could just decide to come together with an aim of ending the food crisis and they set strategies on how to supply food to those countries that are really facing this problem then trust me this world will not even remember that it once had a food crisis.

    Still about unity is that as much as these countries can share their food they also faced a problem of disunity among the countries they are giving to food. This is in a way that these countries like Somalia are having wars now and then and Somalia is among the countries suffering the food crisis but because of these wars (of course mainly caused due to lack of unity) these developed countries may send the food to that country and it may probably not be delivered due to fear of losing lives among the people sent to deliver this food so in simple terms they scare the people who could give them food away.
    OR this food may be shot or blasted by the weapon's firings.
    So as we really blame developed countries for not sharing food with those countries which don't have food we should also think of as well checking why they don't share with us their food.

    So my main point in all this was really lack of unity among both the possible suppliers and the possible receivers.
    And we usually say that we are only as strong as we are united and weak as divided so we really need to gain that spirit of unity to stop this food crisis problem.

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

    First 🤥 of all, the world's population is a lot cause i think like 8 billon people living in it. That's what i think sometimes when someone comes and asks me why don't you share. That question in my ears it sounds bad at all times when a person says it. Here in Uganda, sometimes sharing is a problem but there is a way that me and you can fix that. Some people here like pouring food in the trash cans and they don't know that it's wastage of food but rather than wasting it they can share it with one another like us here, we have a lot of needy people and they need that food to be okay. Rather than wasting the food, we should just it with people who need.

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

    According to me regional disputes between countries should end in order to solve the food crisis.When regional disputes end, countries will be able to trade easily with each other,due to which food will be affordable to the poor wil be easier

  • generous_argument | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    The world has many opportunities to feed all the needy countries, such as some Arab countries and some countries from the African continent. It also has capabilities to produce food, such as the presence of some agricultural lands, the abundance of water and the fertility of the soil. The pages began to spread on social networking sites, trying to make them aware of wasting food and throwing it in the garbage. Others, whom we describe as people who educate the next generation, are trying to educate the next generation that food is useless to throw away and neglect. The crops are the land in which all kinds of food are produced. The most important way is our participation in not neglecting the food and not throwing it away. don't neglect it

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

    Food prices hicked in all over the world after the Covid-19 pandemic. Pakistan also suffered in this situation, food prices increases drastically, but Govt. didn't take steps to overcome the artificial increase in prices.

    How we can solve the conflicts of countries to overcome the food crises in all over world??

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

    In fact most countries, governments give money to the leaders to distribute food according to the areas they manage to give to the needy now like in Uganda the government gives money to Members of parliament and you can find that most MPs use the food for their own benefits and give very little to the communities of which this food can't last for more than 2 days in one home and this is because of having corrupt leaders.
    Then we also have rich countries like USA, England, Russia and many others which have a lot of food but just waste it like the produced food can get rotten because of selfishness yet they could simply donate some food to some under developed countries like Uganda, DRC and South Sudan because most people are dying of hunger and if the above countries would help these poor countries by now this world would be far.
    And also as they say "The food you are wasting could help others."

    How we can solve the conflicts of countries to overcome the food crises in all over world??

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

    As a Pakistani,in my point of view,There's enough food in the world for everyone at the moment,but the point is that not everyone can access it.Many regions in Africa and the Middle East depend on wheat imports from Ukraine and Russia ,two of the world's largest wheat producers,as well as barley,rapeseed and sunflower which are now stuck in silos.On one hand countries like USA, UK ,Germany and many more developed countries have more than enough food and a lot o of it is wasted in restaurants and even houses .Many products can't be sent all around the world due to their shelf life or storage problem.

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

    The world is facing uneven distribution of food because of some reasons like unemployment, low income and poverty. About 821 people in the world are under nourished with lack of food. There are multiple risk factors that affect the distribution of food weather conditions , war,political issues and etc. In countries like US,Germany and etc have surplus food and wastes 40 million tons of food every year. The countries like syria, somalia, south sudan have widespread hunger.
    We can take many primitive measures not to waste food.
    "Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of poor"

  • broadminded_memory | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 05 Nov 2022

    If there is enough food in the world for everyone, why can't people just share?
    This is due to human instinct, because people,by nature, loves possession and being in the top, and this is how countries see that their natural wealth is a weapon to confront other countries,As it results in the submission of some countries and the implementation of the political interests of the controlling state , so the reason is the fear of losing their control,And this is what is happening now with (wheat)

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

    There is enough food to feed 8 billion people on earth 🌍.The world's more food producing countries are China, India,US and Brazil.They feed most of world's population .While Russia and Ukraine has a large amount of wheat which is blocked for some countries.This is supply problem.
    Few countries having very less population as comparing to their food production and resources don't export there food and are eating themselves easily.They are not facing problem of food shortage.They should export food to poor countries.
    Another reason is that trading paths are busy.Climate changes have also effected self food producing countries.Recently flood in Pakistan has destroyed our 33.3% of fields and crops of wheat 🌾, rice,onion, tomato 🍅 e.t.c.
    Civil war in Srilanka and some African countries has also destroyed their food storages and trade.
    All these things are causes of less sharing of food while worlds has enough food to fulfill our needs.

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

    Our world produce enough food to feed every person on this earth but there are some certain circumstances which held in its way and the food is unable to supply to every person
    In my opinion if we keep everything aside poverty, conflicts,ecomics
    We would see that tge6re is still a reason because of the food is not supplied to every person is
    "" Lack of production of food or import of the food ""
    If we take the example of wheat we would see that because of the Ukraine and Russia war is there is sulpher in supplying of wheat to Europe countries because 30% of the Ukraine sweet is supplied whole around the world so I think that this also affect in providing the food to everyone
    "" Storage of food ""

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

    World has enough to feed 8 million people, but why is everyone looking for a solution to the global food crisis? I read about this topic, and it really caught my attention, so I decided to search and find out more. When I searched for it, I recognized that about 828 million people go to bed hungry every night, and the number of people facing acute food insecurity has increased - from 135 million to 345 million - Since 2019. Moreover, there are about 50 million people in 45 countries on the brink of famine. I was really stunned, and I looked for the reasons. Why is this happening? Because of these reasons: prices, climate shocks, and the economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Not only these, but also politics and the validity period. From my point of view, I think that if a person was content to put in a plate enough without an increase, we could provide food for other people. For example, when you go to the restaurant, do not order large quantities of food, because when you feel full, the rest will go to waste, and this will increase the food crisis. We will be able to solve the food crisis when we think about each other before acting like that. Besides, we can encourage our governments to establish some factories for canning food that the country is rich of in order to send food supplies for starving countries as in Africa.

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

    I think sharing is the key for solving this crisis. If we could share food effectively, we can save millions from the beast of hunger. Sharing means caring. Human being has feelings towards each other. We can't deny the existence of the people who need our help right now. However, what can we do to help them? I thought deeply and I realized if everyone express his/ her willing to send food supplies to poor countries by reaching our voices to our country leaders through different ways such as social media apps, emailing the governments' offices , helding popular campaign to tell them we are a united globe.

  • tidy_situation | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 06 Nov 2022

    There is rate race in the world for getting influence over others.People tend to share only waste stuff with others.They are less prone to share food on the name of humanity.Thats why food crisis is not minimising but increasing day by day

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

    There are many reasons that we cannot share food but I discuss only two most important reasons;*Conflicts, *Climate change. Conflicts are very important because due to conflicts we cannot trade with other countries. I belong to Pakistan. There is a conflict between Pakistan and India. So we cannot trade with India. Another reason is climate change. Due to climate change floods and rains occur, which destroy crops. `` Why the trade of SARC is flopped ?`` Because all the countries which are the member of SARC produce same types of crops. So they cannot trade with eachother.

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

    Our mother earth has the potential to feed every being on her. Actually it is estimated that the one third of the food produced are wasted which counts up to 1.3 billion tons. Well thinking the point that people can’t share is seems kind of off to me. I know people who value every bit of grain and a passion to end world hunger. Not every human could reach out to every other human who is hungry. A foundation must be created internationally which can stall their foundations to every bit of land around the world and could collect the food that is either donated or about to go waste and distribute to extend of people going hungry. The FAO can take initiative for this since their goal of ending world hunger by 2030 is nearing to the ridge. This could save tons of food going waste and can actually put Earth to the “hunger-free”planet.

  • inspirational_forest | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 06 Nov 2022

    The population in some countries are more than their food resources like Nigeria the population alone in Lagos can form a country on it’s own but the resources are little.And this is because a lot a people still believe in white collar jobs many graduates don’t have jobs because they are waiting for white collar jobs but if they put that time into something like farming they can both earn money and still provide food for the country,if this is being done and the rate at which people give birth reduces the population and food resources will be equal the food resources may even be more

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

    The overall population of world is about 8 billion and there is enough food to feed all over them. But 828 million people are still facing hunger.
    The question rises here why they are hungry?
    The reason is that some people have more than there need and they do not want any else to compete with them and they waste a lot of food every single day instead of giving it to some needy.
    The reason for "why can't we just share" is our low morality level and class difference.

  • spectacular_theory | Start-Rite Schools | Nigeria 06 Nov 2022

    1. If there is enough food in the world for everyone, why can’t people just share?
    Yes! There is more than enough food in this world. Every country is blessed with abundant assortment of food both known and yet to be discovered by man. One man’s food is another man’s poison they say, so food to one may not necessarily be palatable to another.

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

    There are certain reasons why can't some countries share food among other countries there is a common example Pakistan and India they are not sharing food because of conflicts
    *Conflicts
    *Climate change
    *Storage Capacity
    *Political reasons
    *Food waste

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

    I think people don't share their food because for everyone including me,their own selves come first.Everyone think about their interests the most.They wants other to contribute but not their own selves.
    Some other problems are like in Pakistan,most food is wasted just after the manufacturing because there is no proper storage systems.As well as there is also problem of transportation due to which food products take much time and during this time the food is wasted.Also the pest problem contribute in wasting of food. Policy makers are not working efficiently in making accurate polices regarding funds for the distribution of food to the deserving.

    That's good idea in general but what about safety?
    If someone get poisoned by donated food, who will be responsible? No matter if it happen intentionally or not (due to just expired food or bad conditions of storage and distribution)

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

    People can't share as some people are getting worried and buying more than they need to which is called inflation.
    As well as that, the population of earth is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. The population of the earth has gone from 7 billion to almost 8 billion in around 12 years so no wonder not every one can have enough food.
    Also, the prices of food are going up quickly so some people can't afford to buy enough food which is massive problem.
    So in conclusion countries do provide enough food for everyone although not everyone is sharing.

  • centered_robin | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    Why can't people just share food?
    There are countries where food is available in abundance and countries where there are famines. I think of reasons for this

    1 Because there are problems or disputes between countries, so some countries refuse to share food or import food from a country where there is food to a needy country


    2 The other reason for me is that there are developing countries and developed countries, and this affects the sharing of food. Developing countries do not have modern machines to grow crops, such as Sudan, and as India was in the past, these developing countries cannot share food with others because of the lack of food

    3 I think that this reason is convincing, because when importing food from one country to another, taxes (money) must be paid on the food they bring into the country.

    *Countries should be tolerant of each other for sharing food.*

  • skillful_dragonfly | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 07 Nov 2022

    During my studies in school, I studied sustainable development, which is the optimal use of natural and human resources to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations. However, when I look at our reality, I find that most countries are only interested in matters of politics and how they can survive. On the other hand, presidents enjoy money During my research, I found that Sudan has a poverty rate of 77% despite the existence of Jabal Amer, which is full of gold. I sat down to think with myself saying why the poverty rate in Sudan is so high despite the existence of Jabal Amer. Also, despite the separation of South Sudan, gold production has tripled. Why can't they exploit it, there is Gold with which they can save Sudan from poverty. Yemen also contains 45% of poverty despite the presence of gold in it. Why can't they exploit this????

  • great_location | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 07 Nov 2022

    Well!
    About the topic of sharing food the first thing that comes in our mind is importing food from other countries. As, pakistan import its food from countries such a UAE, Qatar etc. There's enough food in pakistan.
    Then why still There's a problem of food shortage?

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

    Why can't we overcome food crisis? One of the most important reason behind this is that so many people in the world who have resources to get enough food sometimes waste the food they don't even use rather than giving it to the people who need. There is a famous prverb "Sharing is caring" which shows the important of sharing your things with those people who can't even afford them. Atleast if we share our food to the people who need can also decrease the food crisis. We can give extra food to the people rather than wasting it.

    The world's farmers produce enough food to feed the global population . Although the rate of global food production has increased faster than the rate of global population growth food crisis still exist.

    *I believe the reason for people not sharing food may be that classically we have a plate based food culture.

    *Food waste , nearly one- third of the food produced globally each year is lost or wasted .
    If we could recover all the food we waste ,we could feed every hungry person on the planet twice over.
    On the other hand ,you may have seen people attending parties filling up their plates with more food that they can't eat and wasting it,is this justified?

    Hungry is caused by poverty and inequality and not scarcity.

    "An unequal world is a hungry world"

    Though we have enough food we can share only if when we reduce food waste, poverty and inequality

    Anyone ever thought about the food crisis? Yes, and many of us had an idea (why don't we share food), but this idea faces problems that are not simple. 1 The greed of some owners of money I mean that some owners of money do not prefer this solution because they think that it decreases their wealth and money. I want to tell them: It is not so, it will not decrease This is from your money if you buy some supplies for that who is about to die, but you will save the lives of people (you decide their number), but God will double what you spent. So why not allow people to live a healthy diet?! 2 We are in this universe 8 billion people and the planet is 30% land and I think that most of it is suitable for agriculture, so there is certainly enough food, but a large part of it is unfortunately wasted by restaurants and homes, which are the main places that make and waste food. Why does the state not consider this point very important and try to take advantage of it? 3 Some countries have problems related to import and export due to taxes imposed on importers. Why do we do that? Agree, we should profit from exporting because it is considered a trade in the end, but can we raise taxes or reduce their value at least? 4 The economic problem of some countries or individuals is not able to buy simple foodstuffs because these materials are expensive. why is that ? Some mercy! 5 The idea of ​​sharing is not prevalent, so I suggest a solution: Why don't we decide on a specific day with a specific date for people to share food with those who need it. I think that might help.

  • mesmerising_wombat | Lyons Hall Primary School D | United Kingdom 07 Nov 2022

    I think people should share food or open foodbanks for people that really need it and that are hungry and need food to support their families. and people should make a little or big donations to a charity thats halping with the global food crisis.

  • giving_mood | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    There are a lot of questions about people's inability to share lunch only that there is a lot of food in the world and this food we can save from the lack of food in developing countries, but there are difficulties in transporting food for many of them that developed countries use food a lot and waste it, so the leftovers go to Waste is the first reason, but the second reason is that there are no means of transporting food and preserving it in an appropriate way. As for the third reason, because of the shelf life of food, there are many products that expire quickly in the period of their transfer to other countries and also because of wars because wars cause many crises in the war phase. The lack of food is greater because wars between countries make it difficult to transport food to them, so I hope that peace and security will prevail between countries and food, we cannot deal with its waste, so large quantities of food are wasted

    According to my point of view,
    I am PAKISTANI🇵🇰.....
    Sharing of food may be helpful to remove fod crisis but some countries can't able to provide the right amount of food to thier population.
    There are alot of reasons of some countries that they are not able to share food.
    So,I am going to discuss some rop reasons of this problems .
    These reasons are;
    =)Politics
    =)Conflicts
    =)Natural disasters
    1.POLITICS:
    Government programs around food product dividion and consuprion impact the cost,vacuity and safety of the food force domestically and internationally. On a publis scale,food policy work affects growers,food proseccors , wholsalers,retailers and consumers.if the government's plans about agriculture will be good it helps to grow more crops thet will help in sharing of food.
    2.CONFLICTS:
    Conflicts among states, religion even among sects can be reason to not sharing of food , people have bad feelings about the people of different states and sects So, they do not share good.
    3.NATURAL DISASTERS:
    Natural disasters can be reason to not sharing of food like if there is "Flood and Rock sliding" they can be reason of blocking of reads for days or even months So, food can not ne share from one city to another city.

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

    Food crisis is affecting the world globally due to one problem or another including my country Nigeria, ours is caused by insecurity which leads to less transportation of food from one part of the country to another.
    This problem of insecurity which leads to food crisis can be solved by introducing farming to other states so that each state can grow their own food.

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

    Global food crises has affected so many countries especially Nigeria. So many people in the Northern part of Nigeria are suffering from food insecurity because of conflict and violence of non-state armed group. This conflict has affected the agricultural aspect of the Northern people. Farmers are scared of going to the farm, fishermen are scared of going to the river,while some herders loose their animals when there is violence.
    The conflict has done so many bad things to them, they have less food to eat which leads to hunger which also leads to death of children and adults, diseases like ulcer and this reduces the population of the people.
    I believe that advancement of the security in the Northern part will stop the violence, when there is good security they will be safe and happy and it will reduce the death rate

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

    It's totally okay to share but the question is after sharing food,will everyone have enough to consume and stay fit.
    For a country that has limited food it will be difficult for such a country to share food and still have enough to feed on.I am a Nigerian,we cannot share our food because food scarcity is dominant in my country as we now depend on Togo for grain supply especially "Rice".
    The problem is that not everyone would want to share the product of their struggle. Conflict is another reason why most countries can't share food with each due to lack of tolerance. But i strongly believe that if there is enough food and love among all nations everyone will share their food.

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

    I think food crisis is caused by war between neighbouring countries. When a particular country lacks several types of food,there would be no assistance or help that can be rendered when the love and friendship has been broken. The government need to create a diplomacy between two waring foreign countries.
    Insecurity can also be a great cause of food crisis, in a situation where by the lives of farmers are not safe and neither are their properties, the fear of getting killed by kidnappers and wild animals on their farm lands can make farmers retire and quit for a certain period of time and by doing so there would be scarcity of foods in the country. The issue of insecurity from kidnappers and wild animals should be strictly adhered to and the government should create agencies that would be found at every where to protect farmers and their crops from being attacked. I believe that we need to help ourselves grow and become great.

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

    Global food crisis can be also known as world food problem. Countries in the world experience food crisis and can be caused by flooding, conflict, mismanagement of resources, and oil leakage.
    Conflict is a big problem among countries for example in a situation whereby countries can't tolerate themselves and they go about damaging their crops and livestock. Oil leakage is also a cause of food crisis, when there is leakage of oil, it spoils the soils and crops.
    So therefore , to avoid food crisis, there should be large drainage system to avoid flood and there should be love and tolerance among countries of the world to avoid food crisis.

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

    Scarcity has been the reason why there's food crisis in Nigeria now .Though human want are ready but since the land ,Labour,capital required for making goods are limited in supply,which is impossible to satisfy human wants.
    The only way to curb this food crisis is by living in peace with other countries.

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

    First, as being Pakistani I will say that there is a lot population of our country about 220 Million. Our production is not much enough to feed our own people, so how we are gonna share food with other countries. Same this situation is happening with the other countries.
    But the good point is that the develop countries can produce much food and they can supply it to others.
    In my opinion we must control our population growth so that we can share food with other countries as stated above!

  • efficient_moment | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    From my point of view, raising birds,cats and dogs to benefit from food waste is a great solution. Another solution is to give the poor the food waste so that they benefit from it so that we do not throw it away and so that people can benefit from it.

    Global food crisis is a cankerworm that has eaten deep into the global economy. According to Goal 2 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Concern,it is working hard to eliminate hunger and malnutrition.
    The major cause of global food crisis can be linked to war and conflict. In a country where there is war,destroying of rural infrastructure,loss of livelihood can lead to food insecurity. For example,the Northwest and North central states of Nigeria are experiencing high level of food insecurity due to the long running armed conflict and violence.

    Cultivation of more productive and fast-growing crops that require less water, such as potatoes, carrots, cabbage, squash and beans Exceptional measures can also be taken to curb the drug trade, ban the import and manufacture of alcoholic beverages, reduce the consumption of tobacco and other non-essential goods and replace them with productive ones.

  • eloquent_concept | Gaza Prep B Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 08 Nov 2022

    There is enough to feed everyone, but the point is that not everyone can get it.. For example, many countries depend on other countries to export their resources, but they may encounter difficulties in that... including a ban on exports... or an increase in prices. As we are seeing now... Although these countries get a good crop of grain, they do not have enough information. So we are not talking about the amount of food we want to deliver, but rather how to ensure that it is delivered truly healthy, nutritious and long-term.

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

    I discovered that in the period of flood ,there is always unavailability food resources . One of the problem is climate change especially flooding .

    In some states in nigeria like lokoja and Lagos . We see the case of flooding . The flood destroys the crops that are being planted .because people drop refuse during the rainy season and when the refuse are too much and the water is unable to pass the right path and start to spread into different areas .

    The problem can be solved by government establishing the disciplinary committee that would be in charge of waste products and that would ensure waste products are properly dispose

  • quickwitted_tamarind | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 09 Nov 2022

    I think that people do not share because:
    People are worried about the crisis. This will make them stress and overbuy so they have enough food. However, this just means the shops will run out of food quicker.
    A way to fix this would be trying to do something about climate change-it is the reason for why Earth is having such extreme weather. So we could try to simply turn lights our when we leave the room, or get renewable energy.

  • accurate_wombat | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 09 Nov 2022

    To be honest, it seems like no one wants to help another person or another nation because of fear, what fear, well the fear that one day they might run out and no one would be there to help them. we all know the common term
    '' national interest'' yes people can help but they help mostly if and only if it benefits them too, some countries try to lend a helping hand to others but most times it serves to benefit them more, don't you think so, in Nigeria in order to cope with the hunger and poverty some families rarely have three square meals some either dinner but no breakfast or lunch, while some eat lunch and have no breakfast or dinner. I think it is not only the matter of sharing, but how exactly we do the sharing I believe that if we rationalize the quantity of food given to us, we could have a reasonable amount of food in each household to sustain each household till we discover more effective solutions.

  • best_potato | Àlímòsó Senior Grammar School | Nigeria 09 Nov 2022

    Some countries tend to import more more food when there is scarcity. Scarcity could arise when there is war conflict, unfavorable weather condition (climate) and inefficient resources
    Take Puerto Rico for instance,food items were destroyed by the hurricane Maria.They would not want to share their food to avoid hunger strike. The hurricane Maria destroyed 85% of their food making them have a food crisis

  • genuine_technology | Al Reyad Boys Elementary School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    1- countries should work together in good faith to share data and explore when and in what circumstances to release food from national stockpiles and granaries.
    2- We need to re-imagine where our food comes from and move, at least in part, towards more seasonal diets with a lower use of land and a serious reduction in global trade – especially for fruits, vegetables, and protein.

  • compelling_hurricane | Boutcher CofE Primary A | United Kingdom 09 Nov 2022

    I think sharing would be a great idea! For example , India makes a ton of rice per year so why can't India sell half of the rice they make and the other half give free ? I know it's not as easy as it sounds but maybe one day who knows.
    Also another good idea is , where I live I think it's Thursdays and Sundays , local people put up a gazebo and give out free food like: bananas , apples , eggs ,sometimes meat.

    Actually enough food is produced today to feed everyone on the planet out there, but the only fact is that the distribution is not equal everywhere; unequal access and inefficient handling leaves millions of people malnourished.
    What every person does first is think about themselves.
    Statistics show that approximately 40% of the food produced in America is never eaten and if just half of the potential food waste worldwide were recovered, we could end Food Crisis.

    People in developed countries like USA, UK, Germany and many more developed countries waste their food in such a way that there is no importance of it but they don't understand that people in developing or underdeveloped countries like Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia do not even have ingredients to cook food.
    That thousands of plates wasted today could feed other thousands of people who were hungry since days. If people could only understand others then today there would not be any websites on internet speaking about food crisis; there would not be any one on the world going to bed with an empty stomach.

    Due to factors, including conflict, economic conditions, natural hazards, climate change as well as political condition food is being wasted.
    The point is that food is being wasted in some places and food is lacking in other places. If this ratio of WASTE and LACK was maintained then we could obviously end the food crisis.
    But the only problem is that people don't understand 'WHY' should we share food and end food crisis.

    I hereby say that if every one has right to food and right to live then we must help them get their rights.
    Now there is not time for discussion, it is time for action to feed those hungry stomach.

    We can't share the food because not everyone in the world will be able to access the food we try to share, mainly due to law enforcement or transportation issues.

  • objective_guitar | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    I believe they don't share because some people have grudges and some are money hungry and they have trading problems.

  • hopeful_anteater | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    I think that they can't do this because it's very hard to ship food around the world and some foods would rot or not be good anymore. There is enough food in the world it's just hard to ship.

    We can but at the same time we cant it really depends sometimes people who are very generous well transfer food or give food away to people to the people in need but back in time some people really give away a lot of food cause they also had to take care of them self and make sure they were fed well.

    I believe they don't share because some people have grudges and some are money hungry and they have trading problems. Just like when we simulated the global food crisis it was very chaotic because people have conflict with other individuals which made them refuse to share food and others had alliances that made people refuse from sharing also causing war.

    We cannot share because some of the countries just want the food for themselves and they are selfish. Also we can't share because some people would like to share but there is like a high population of people in some countries.

    In my experience when we did the global food crisis it was terrible because my country did not have many materials so we couldn't make food, then water was wasted on them and we had lost some food. So we couldn't eat some food. Then countries were trying to start wars so our trades were slow. So my country had a shortage. Then some countries was being selfish and didn't want to trade with our country. We had an Alliance with another country and we had each other back.

  • fairminded_plum | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    We can all share but smeone will always be greedy and want more because some people are not satisfied with what they have because even though they have enough they want more just to have more its not like they need it.
    As in my life i bought a bag of chips and my grandma made me share with my cousin and we both had equal amounts of chips but he told on me for not giving him an equal amount ofchips and even though i gave him more he ended up throwing them away because i "gave him too much".

  • assertive_potato | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    The reason why people cannot or won't share their food is because people don't like certain people in the country or the country itself. So one reason is because they feel that the people don't deserve the food or they are in a war with those people or they cannot provide any food with those people because they need the food for war conflict or they have no way to transport the food to other people. Also alliances are formed so some people are mad about alliances with their enemy so they try and form a blockade or some way to stop them from transporting food or they will not allow anyone pass a certain area of there continent or country without a discussion or battle.

  • innovative_construction | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Countries can't just share food because some countries are pretty selfish. They would probably say no no matter what the circumstances are. When we did the activity a country named Poland was trying to ask for food but, everyone was being selfish and saying no. After that countries started forming alliances proving that the countries would only share with their alliances and with no one else.

  • active_lychee | Al Reyad Boys Elementary School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 09 Nov 2022

    Among the causes of the global food crisis are the following
    First, wars, political conflicts and acts of violence in the world
    secondly . The growing population growth in the world
    Third . Natural disasters such as droughts, floods, hurricanes and storms that destroy agricultural crops
    Fourthly . Climate change in terms of temperature, precipitation and wind that mainly affect agriculture

  • resilient_environment | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    Sharing could be possible, but some countries may have conflicts and may be selfish. Also, the countries may not have enough money. The world population is almost 8 billion. Even if the people were dying the countries may not have enough money to ship the food.

    There is enough food in the world. Factors can produce millions of foods each day. The thing is countries may not like other countries and people are not willing to spend their money on food for other people. But, in the opinion I would share food with other countries if i was a leader because in my eyes that is just unfair and people can die and I wouldn't want that.

    In my class we did a simulation where my team and classmates were countries and had to cut our shapes to have points to survive in the country we had. My country was Italy and there were 3 people in my team. There were 5 teams in total, Italy, South Korea, China, Poland, and France. Poland had 2 people but they were low on food and didn't have enough points to take care of their people so they tried to make an alliance and failed many times but France accepted and helped them out.

    Meanwhile, China was run by a dictator who put his only team member to work for him forever and she couldn't escape. Kinda like South Korea. But China had enough food for their country so they were ok.

    South Korea played a huge role in the simulation Their team had at least 4-5 people and they almost made alliances with everyone but they lost some alliance because some countries did not like other countries and those countries were both alliances with South Korea. In the end South Korea had alliances with Italy, China, and Poland.

    My team Italy was very very very close to not having enough food points to take care of the 3 members including me. Italy made alliances with China and South Korea, But originally had France as an alliance too but France did not like South Korea so France Left.

    Also a war broke out in China with South Korea and France because France didn't like China and South Korea threw a nuclear launch at France which made some of their food points gone. The war also made China look bad since the leader was a dictator and his member escaped from China to France. So that's also a reason why China and France didn't get along.

    There was also like a huge water that fell on the food points and caused the food crisis for every country.

    But that was just my experience. I hope you liked this comment!

  • openminded_wildcat | Riverdale Middle School A | United States of America 09 Nov 2022

    In my experience, Many countries can form alliances so therefore countries cannot just share their food because they don't have alliances with other countries.Other countries who don't have alliances may have little food because they don't have another country to share their food with.

    If There Is Enough Food In The World For Everyone, Why Can't People Just Share?

    If there was enough food in the world for the people to share we still would not be able to share. I said this because of 'Food Waste.' People almost all over the world waste food every year. For Example: If I get food from the supermarket, go home, and put the food in the fridge for a while then throw it away, that would be a waste of food. And that is why people all over the world can't just share food.

    We would have to trade; trading would make it a bit better and easier for people to buy and sell food. BUT BE CAREFUL! Sometimes sharing would be a bit better, because it has been none that some countries would go to war, because of a small scam. So, I would say we can't share, but that's my opinion.

    What's Yours?

    This statement is very fascinating , as , by learning about how much food is consumed in a year , which is 2.5 billion metric tones , there is enough food in the world. However, we still see people suffering and dying from starve for we are wasting and not caring for others like we would want other people to care for us. To me it's really about the message ,' treat people as you want to be treated.'

  • steadfast_reality | Govt. Comprehensive Boys High School | Pakistan 09 Nov 2022

    There could be several reason non major reason is that food is something that is highly valued resources and therefore' one might feed it tough to give once personal highly valued resource to other.
    Moreover, sharing food maybe considered as less hygienic and a source of cross contamination of different allergences and viruses. Therefore, one might feel hesitant in sharing (both in giving and receiving) food. Specially after the pendemic of COVID-19, the slogan of" Sharing is not caring" has set the trend of not sharing the food.
    Culture ,specially family culture may also play a role in such practices. Some families, and particularly parents teach their children not to share their food with others, or share in a "tit for tat" manner which could result in food exchange but not sharing.
    Finally sometimes we are not confident of the taste of our food or have a fear of negative evaluation from others for one food practices and preferences. This may also stop us sharing our food.

  • crafty_quince | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 09 Nov 2022

    There has been a lot of surveys which have stated that there has been enough food to feed everyone in the world.The words 'sharing and caring' is very simple but really is difficult to follow because of the human psychology.When we share we feel that we are not going to get any benefit out of it.We feel that it is no way going to help us.So I beleive that this thought process of people is what makes them to be hesitant to share.

    Food crisis is so branched. Climate change, poverty and lack of food are a result of political situation in the whole world. Wars among countries make sharing food very difficult.  It even may become impossible because of the breaking of food chains.
    I think food crisis is a manmade so humans should solve it. This will not happen except we put our quarrels away and pay attention to this crises from a human side.

    Sharing is caring is a famous phrase we ve heard from teacher nd other class fellows since the time I was in play group. During this lesson I felt that if all the groups b given all resources equally ther would not be been any problem for any group . An idea struck to my mind that if my teacher had been knowing the result of this unfair distribution may b all student could do better work . It made me thoughtful that from the authorities of any country sharing is done . So 829 million of people would not sleep hungry .
    Ukraine is producing a big amount of food if extra food is shared with the people of Australia Bangladesh south africa Taiwan nd the uk . Then food is not wasted any more .

  • thankful_cherry | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 10 Nov 2022

    In a world of innovation &technology,food production is no more a big challenge .The point is why 821 million people according to UN analysis are"chronically undernourished"& having enough food insecurity.We are tend to waste or loss food but not sharing .We can share food if we stop wasting it.Sharing food would repose our trust on the people.We must give budgetry support to the impoverished people.There would be worldwide "freedom from hunger"if we create the situations where the volunteer people,NGO's,government develop a consensus to make food approachable to those who are deprived of it.Then we can develop a society which would be "morally right",politically sound and economically self sufficient.

    I live in pakistan ..in my religion sharing is given much importance with the phrase of Aisaar nd sacrifice for others . Here in sharing we ve to just share what we ve extra .or we ve enough amount of food to b shared . In my opinion sharing is done becoz the countries like Indonesia Bangladesh Japan Poland .nd Canada don't ve access to the countries like Ukraine ,pakistan nd USA. Means they ve some type of transport issues . Besides the countries whose productivity is good .. they can also not manage to share their food with others for the same reason .

  • engaging_plantain | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 10 Nov 2022

    Well, there is enough food to feed the whole world. But most of the food items produced globally are sold for a living. If the food is just shared for free the farmers and also the government will run at a loss. About 25% of the Global Gross Domestic Product(GGDP) is made from agriculture and if the food is just given away, the world economy will suffer a great loss.

  • knowledgeable_ocean | Njoro Boys High School | Kenya 10 Nov 2022

    Putting in mind that world has sufficient food we still cannot share it. In my view this is brought about by greed of some states in the world/people in a country. Some state/people have a superiority complex towards other states/people. Others want to oppress and suppress others as they want to ask for food in order to be give. Some states/people are selfish and want to benefit themselves and also development their own state alone. This could be overcome by electing leaders who can make a difference in the world. These leaders should be selfless and have a vision to face the food crisis.

    There are many food crises around the world. Millions of children die every year due to hunger, due to the high prices of food products, and the individual is unable to buy them. There are some reasons that affect the food crisis, such as “conflicts and the lack of equitable sharing of food, as well as climate change” so we must all cooperate To solve these problems, including "promoting local food production", which is like intensifying agriculture and taking care of crops, this contributes to food production and reduces faminesAnd also educating generations about the dangers of famine, which will lead to increased awareness among people and reduce famine, as the state must provide job opportunities in order to increase per capita income and increase economic activity in the state, and this will reduce famine by a large percentage. Free from poverty and famine

    food crises
    Why don't people just share food?
    From my point of view, not everyone should share his food because many poor families cannot help themselves. Sharing food is obligatory for those who have a large amount of food or have the ability to buy in quantities. This is also a kind of humanity because this contributes to a certain extent. What to reduce food crises around the world.

    Food crises are situations in which food is less available in a country or among people.

    Food crises have many causes, including:

    1-The poor economic situation and the inability of the state to give the needs of its people
    2-Shortage of crops, which leads to food shortages,
    3-The presence of many undeveloped countries such as South Africa that suffer from crises
    4-Not sharing people's food in difficult situations.
    5-Land that is unsuitable for agriculture, which prevents people from coming upon their needs

    In my opinion, there are some solutions for example:
    1-Help developed countries for those who are not developed
    2-Focus on agriculture and crop production
    3-Do small projects and businesses that help a person get money to get food
    4-Don't waste food and help others

    In the end, I would like to tell everyone to appreciate what they have because some can't get it and I advise Everyone helps as long as they can and be thankful for God

    At the outset, I want to say that participation is a good thing, but nevertheless, you face many difficulties, such as food poisoning, expiration of food expiry dates, and wars. We find that the Russian and Ukrainian wars threatened famine. Wasting food Food waste is rampant in many countries to get views. This is a disgusting thing, as well as the high prices of food. Also, when we find that there are almost many developing countries, there are 130 developing countries, and this is not a small number.

    I think there is enough food in the world for people to share but they people won't share because they want money back.

  • motivated_dolphin | Adamson Middle School A | United States of America 10 Nov 2022

    Actually people could share. Sometimes you have to think about things like, what if some people don't get as much food or support as you. Even though not all people would want to share. It would be a good thing to share food, it's always a good thing to help people in need. For as many people to go to bed hungry or not even get three meals a day is a problem. You could even give them some spare change, they would enjoy going out and buying a meal.

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

    Even though there is almost 8 billion people around the world, people are still wasting food at this moment. Not everyone are sharing their leftovers and many people throw their food in the trash. The Worldham a great potential to feed everyone out there. In my opinion, nobody in this world should throw food away because there are people out their dying from starvation, food waste is the most difficult thing to waste.

  • resilient_bee | Adamson Middle School A | United States of America 11 Nov 2022

    I am pretty sure there is enough food for everyone in the world but I think it would be hard for people to share because like to get the food to the people that are hungry you would need to send it to them and like some countries might not send food to them because of political reasons and also because the food might go bad or because it might be hard for countries to send food to other countries.

    A common reason why we might not share might be the FDA. there might be restrictions on donating certain foods to local food banks. So many areas around may be wasting food because of of the FDA. Bringing food to poor countries would be difficult, as food could spoil, so poor countries may not have enough food.

  • adept_imagination | Start-Rite Schools | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    It is very logical to share, just like how we import and export goods to other countries, we can do the same with food. There's a twist though, instead of sending other goods like electronics and machinery, we can use the trade by barter system, where we swap out our different foods. For example:
    If Country A has a surplus of rice but needs beans and Country B has a surplus of canned beans but needs rice, Country A can trade their rice for some beans and vice versa.

    For the issue of shelf life, as mention in the example above, we can export tinned/canned foods or food that have very long shelf life like fruits, oats and vegetables.

  • terrific_tornado | Boutcher CofE Primary B | United Kingdom 11 Nov 2022

    I wish people could share, but I countries use their supplies of food as a weapon of power, like they will only share food if it benefits them.
    Also people can be selfish like we saw in lockdown people taking all the food for themselves and not caring about other people. People panic buying and buying more than they needed which meant a lot of vulnerable people had little or none.
    There is also a lot of food waste especially in developed countries, a lot of people throw away good food instead of trying to use it up.

  • alert_planet | Àlímòsó Senior Grammar School | Nigeria 11 Nov 2022

    Global Food Crisis is one of the major problem we have in the countries of the world and can be caused by climate change, some countries might have experienced climate change which are floods,heat waves, storms, droughts.Due to this reasons,countries won't want to distribute their food.When there is no unity, agreement between two or more countries, you can see conflict as a problem.
    In my country,we the citizens or people have problems that we are facing now, which is rise in food prices and also there is lack of limited resources (scarcity) which will make people go hungry.
    In order to put an end to food crisis, education and job should be provided by the government, reduction of food wastage and encouragement of subsistence farming.

  • methodical_didgeridoo | Gaza Prep B Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    When I think 🤔 of a solution to the " food crisis" problem, it comes to my mind why we don't share.
    If every developed country like America, Germany, the United States and many developed countries have a lot of extra food but it is wasted in waste and restaurants, why don't they share it instead of throwing it that Somalia and Sudan and some countries suffer from a lack of food, so why do we not share? Why do we not help these countries that suffer from this crisis? If every developed country that has enough excess food has shared it , the problem of the food crisis is solved, so we must all help and participate in this crisis to solve it.

  • ambitious_hummingbird | Clapham Manor Primary School B | United Kingdom 11 Nov 2022

    In my opinion the global food crisis is a very big deal{And I'm sure that lots of people agree...}and i think that a cause of this problem is that our world leaders aren't doing enough to help this crisis.What I mean by this is that one of our ex-leaders made his own rule and he broke it! This proves that he was not fit for running this country,and there is a lot of other presidents/prime ministers that shouldn't be in power.And this is a lot to do with the global food crisis because they are our world leaders and they should actually have a clue on what to do because right now there is over 823 million people going to bed hungry and 7,000 dye every 5 minutes and we need to start thinking about our choice and if you see this comment please think about who you choose and bye have a lovely day!

  • congenial_turkey | Govt. Shuhada-e-APS Model Girls High School A | Pakistan 11 Nov 2022

    This is very interesting point that the world has enough food to feed all the people yet 690 billion people go to the bed hungry It is just because that we do not share food .The develop countries like USA ,France,Germany, America has a lot of food but they do not share food and many of the food get wasted in the restaurants and in there homes and the undeveloped countries like Somalia ,South Sudan which do not had enough food to provide all the people in their country are affected with food crisis and many people died in their country only because of food hunger
    The reason is
    Food waste On the daily basis ton of food will waste but they cannot share with others May be our sharing become a life saving for others

  • powerful_significance | Clapham Manor Primary School A | United Kingdom 11 Nov 2022

    Why cant we just share food with each other because many people are in need right now and people which are not going through the problem some people are having.The and i came up with a plan, instead of throwing food away we can save some for the next day if you are hungry. And another way to help people in need right now is that we can buy some food and leave some and give it to a person who is hungry has no shelter and has no food. And also we can be thoughtful and donate more money to charities so that charities can give food to people in need which have no food as a big gift to make them happy and they can live a normal life. So from now on we should care about others and give them something they need like shelter, a blanket, food and lots more.

  • bustling_sea | Byfleet Primary School | United Kingdom 11 Nov 2022

    There are actually many reasons why we can't ''Just share''.

    1.Some people have different ideas or opinions, leading to disagreements and then wars.This means countries won't get as much food (For example: If The USA got invaded by a nearby country, we wouldn't get as much food The USA transports because of the war) Also, some presidents and PMs etc etc, Wan't more land and we all know it doesn't go down peacefully.

    2.Some people refuse certain foods because either they don't like it or they're allergic, being allergic is really the only acceptable way to refuse food,some people eat food regardless if they like it or not.The people that eat food regardless if they like it or not, there's 2 reasons for that as well, either they are forced to, or they care for others health and think they should force themselves to eat nasty food like bugs, everyone could have nice food if people shared to other countries equally, everyone would help one another but unfortunately, most people don't think like that.

    3. Some people , mostly leaders ,want world dominance and don't wan't to share, so then they act neutral and then stop supplying food.

    Thank you for reading my massive message

    Yes there is enough food in the world to feed everyone actually the world's farmers produce enough food to feed 1.5x the global population. But the problem is access and availability of food. Nearly the world population is 8 billion and 12.9% of people in the world suffering food crisis. The world produce nearly 2.5 metric tons of perishable food which is wasted due to storage and transport facility. When we try to solve this problem we need finance and resource availability but there exist an insufficient availability of these resources in many countries. Many of the people in the world cannot afford to the food available because of poverty and so on . They're chronically ''undernourished''.
    Chronically undernourished means that a person is not able to acquire enough food to meet the daily minimum dietary energy requirements . When we import and export surplus perishable food with an efficient technology we can solve this problem but we need to undergo certain risk in this idea. That is transport which need fuel which is insufficient in many countries.

  • rational_dove | Al Reyad Boys Elementary School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 11 Nov 2022

    Yes, I am with the proposal to share food in the world by resolving disputes between nations, providing necessary food for each person, avoiding housing in places where natural disasters occur, and preserving agricultural crops from pollution. Countries that have a lot of food help countries that have a shortage of food and publicly help people who have a shortage of food.

  • compelling_flute | Kibeda School | Sudan 11 Nov 2022

    An estimated 17% of food is wasted around the globe each year yet 10% of the population is famished, so why can't we just share? Many people believe that someone can just collect food and give it to poor people, but that's not the case. Initially, in order for countries to share food, food that people were originally going to throw away or waste should be gathered from (houses, factories, restaurants, etc.), stored, inspected, then shipped across the country then shipped across the oceans. After that, the food should be distributed to ensure it arrives on the plates of those who need it. This process costs millions of dollars placing the country's economy at risk this leads to countries preferring to ignorantly dump excess food into oceans.

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

    I think we can't share because of the word after it only where we can share, but there has to be attention, cleanliness, quality of storage and distribution regularly, maybe sometimes we have to reprocess the food, and there also has to be good relations between countries to complete this equation. Facilitating transportation routes to transport this food without going through rough roads that may lead to mixing or spoiling, and if the roads are not far away, they would reach the expired countries and cause them poisoning and diseases, and there must be fair supervision so that there are no bribes that allow those who intend evil He did it, whether it was poisoning food or something else.

    there is definitely enough food for the world but selfish people throughout the world throw the food away because they dont like it or there full when they could be donating food to different countries so think about the next time someone ask you "hey can i have some or a peice" say yes they could be homeless or something or not getting fed plus your still going to have some food left too. this is my opinion or the global food crisis.

    We can't share our food if we looked for this distance we saw a very big problems lead to hunger in some country and that effects to population health and it also make lots of diseases to faced this problems we should start from our self you ask me how? There is lots of solutions like : saving some of our money every day and in the last of the month we give them for poor people .
    Lots of country wasted a big quantities of food every day form resturant for example if all countries have a system to resound the food and give them for poor people or poor countries we can't found hunger people .

  • fearless_moth | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 12 Nov 2022

    Yes indeed there is enough food to feed everyone in the world but the question arises why can't we people just share?
    The answers to the question is self interests, its shelf life and political issues..
    Self Interests: Take for example the farmers..they see their interest in farming..they will harvest the crops and feed their family by the money they will get by selling those crops..then how come they can give those crops for free to anyone?
    Shelf Life: Most of the food's shelf life is low due to which it is not possible to transport that food around the world where it is needed.
    Political Issues: Despite saying sharing is caring and in the following era where message of peace and harmony is being spread by different countries, there are other countries who don't want sharing, peace and harmony..
    So to eradicate the problem of hunger from the world we have to be selfless..we have to produce the food with increased shelf life and most of all we have to create the world which gives us the true picture of peace and equality..

    After looking at the sessions on food crisis i feel like sharing few things that I have implimeted at home .
    Have created awarenss on food wastage at home to act on following points
    Cook only that much as what we want for the family.This has reduced food wastage and resourse wastage .Excess of ccoked food we keep it to stay dogs on street to eat.
    Careful planning of vegetables purchased .This would reduce the rottening of tomatoes and onions at home .
    Planning to bring such awareness in neighbourhood.
    Our school has also motivated us to have a kitchen garden at home so that we grow our own chillies tomatoes ladiesfingure etc. Growbags are of great help here .
    We are planning to give surpless yield to neighbour s .
    Are there any such plans in other schools in different countries ?

    There is enough food in the world for everyone, but not ever can access it.
    The Global Program Food Security ( GPFS ) emphasize the need to strengthen systemic approaches to healthy food systems. In some regions hunger is increasing rapidly because of crisis.
    Many regions in Africa and Middle East depend on wheat imports from Ukraine and Russia. And because of various commercial and financial issues, the historical high prices we are now seeing have actually already been rising for 2 years .This is a very complex issue, and there is no quick fix, we need emergency food aid to be complemented by systematic action, which takes longer to deliver results..

  • content_shark | Tarun Madhyamik Vidyalaya | Nepal 12 Nov 2022

    About the food ,the opinion I have is I guess everyone have the enough food for themselves to keep their own fit and fine and healthy. Obviously in the context of less amount of food, we see everywhere there is an agricultural activities, though it's for their own or the country or also the business. But there are lots of poor people who can't afford their daily meal and I guess this is what we need to talk about. What we do it we actually are just happy for us getting the good living standard and we never thought about sharing it. We’re usually talking about taking money from some to buy food for others. Or we’re talking about collectivizing the farms. Or something similar that is not free in any absolute sense. We’re talking about something with trade-offs, with side-effects. Obviously there are lots of ways to solve or let ourselves know how can we be sharing food indirectly as well. We go in restaurants , hotels for food, but not necessary we complete all of them, so we can distribute the food to the poor one or one not affording their meals, it is going to be helpful in 2 ways, the food not being wasted and the one getting their meal. Also instead of throwing the food , we can actually give it as a charity as well. So likewise I guess we need to make a habit of SHARING.

    Our inability to feed the entirety of the world's population is mostly due to food waste. There's enough food in the world for everyone at the moment, but the point is that not everyone can access it.
    Ending hunger isn't about supply. The world produces enough food to feed everyone on the planet. The problem is access and availability, both of which are disrupted by things like extreme weather, food waste, one's gender and worst of all conflict.

  • credible_analysis | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 13 Nov 2022

    Food is required to live, so where there is starvation, death prevails their. Starvations some times are inflicted by natural causes and some due to mismanagement at the hands of human beings. If food is available with one region in abundance , it can be shared with other regions where there is shortage. But sharing is either a courtesy or exchange for earning revenue. As for as revenue earning based sharing is concerned, greed for want of more and more wealth can make a supplier to slowdown or halt sharing. Too much distance can also put obstacles for the supply. A region which stands in a war zone or where there is not good law and order situation - can also get no share of food from other regions. In the history of Mogadishu, General Farah Adeed , a war lord did not let share food to the people there - is an example.

  • giving_gazelle | Cheam Common Junior Academy | United Kingdom 13 Nov 2022

    Although we have enough food in the world for every single person's plate, we still can't share all of it. Firstly, developed countries can import more goods are they have more money. Moreover, developing countries can't afford that much to support everyone in that part of the world. In addition, even if your country is economically rich and wealthy this doesn't solve all the problems. Climate change is another massive factor - some countries are so far away. Each time we transport food, we emit more greenhouse gasses. Other people receive adequate amount of food on their plates but waste an enormous amount of it. Around one third of the food produced each year is lost or wasted, costing the global economy some $1 trillion per year!

  • observant_queen | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    The world is witnessing a rise in the prices of materials and a shortage of food. This crisis resulted from high temperatures, floods, drought and climate change, which led to a food crisis. From my point of view, it is possible to reduce food waste and extravagance with it. It is possible that strong countries that are able to provide food help weak countries, especially in the agricultural and production fields. We have to be one hand cooperative, which leads to the elimination of crises in general and the food crisis in particular.

  • excited_journalist | Rafah Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory 13 Nov 2022

    I think that the political boundaries set by humans were the main reason behind the equitable distribution of food in the world.

Therefore, global participation is required to eradicate hunger and expand the work of the International Organization (FAO)

  • decisive_reality | Bal Bharati Public school B | India 14 Nov 2022

    According to me, food is area specific and depends upon the agricultural growth and seasonal patterns. Nonetheless, when it comes to sharing, we as a community can do this but the major issues we may encounter are:
    - Specific Food/ nutrition scarcity in few areas
    - Transportation problems while transporting food to countries
    Moreover, the adequate food resources may not be relevant and consistent after a certain amount of time.
    For example: A research published by World Food Programme depicts that few countries like Yemen, Ethopia and Nigeria etc.. are major hunger hotspots.
    The question arises is why? Because few countries have more than minimum food required yet, they still don’t make meticulous use of it. Whereas, these hunger hotspots countries face extreme climatic condition and development is on slow pace which further impacts their economical position.

    These reasons are due to:

    2_ Everyone also considers that he, his children, and the people of his household have priority in his efforts and endeavors to earn the sustenance of his children.
    3_ In addition to the fact that here in Gaza the economic situation is deteriorating and the unemployment rate is high, so people calculate a thousand accounts at the bite and spend money because it may not come later, following the example of “hide the white currency for the black day.”

    Our world is an enormous one right ?
    So why can't people just share to solve this deadly food crisis ?

    Let's talk India. India is currently ranked at 107 out of 121 in the Global Hunger Index. But guess what they have an annual average wastage of 69 million metric tons of food. There the question arises "Why can't we share to solve this problem ?"

    1) Most of the household food wasted has a small shelf life to go on for example dairy products , meat , chicken , etc. If this food reaches the needy, it will only cause diseases and make the situation worse.

    2) There are many schemes implemented by the government to solve the hunger problem. But the execution of them comes with loopholes. For example the mid day meal scheme was implemented by the government in schools to provide the children of Below Poverty Line (BPL) to get an adequate diet and prevent malnutrition. But when it came to execution of this scheme there was a loophole within the government employees.

    3) I feel like India is such a populated region that maintaining and distributing the wasted food will be a challenge. There needs to be a well developed and connected system directly transferring the food to the needed. Apart from that, all the banquet halls and ceremonial halls should give the unused food after every function to the needed by well developed distribution system.

  • accurate_hurricane | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 15 Nov 2022

    The problem of food wastage is a very important matter that is taken lightly by everyone including those in power. The world today has advanced farming in different ways , technology has also been introduced into this aspect which makes it capable of providing food for everyone in the world
    Sharing is a strong word especially when it concerns the whole world . It is possible for developed countries to share their food resources but there are some hindering factors such as :

    Budget: So many countries are not ready to invest so much money in feeding other people who are not their own citizens ;as Unspoken Knowledge said " countries are not ready to put in a surplus budget to feed other nations people this could put them in great economic depression ".This could lead to great lost on the side of those sharing.

    Rise In Food Cost: The rapid rise in the cost of food especially in Nigeria is quiet alarming . Nowadays people don't die of incurable diseases and all that but because of starvation . The cost of food is so high even for the citizens talk more of other countries .

    Nonchalant Attitude from those in Power: The aspect of food crisis and all are usually taken very lightly by those in power .They are advised to look more into the aspect of food in their various countries and it should be taken with all seriousness .
    Everyone in general should have the access to programs for food to enhance sharing of fo0d

I feel like he should be able to just give out food and other resources to improve the worlds state. Because he has been noticed by so much, he most likely can put information like this out somewhere to get a lot of peoples attention. SInce the population is so high, not even he has to do this many others can help out people in their local area or just give back to a random area.

    hello, i disagree as food shouldn't be shared as different cultures have different food systems. if people gave beef to places where cows are sacred, they're not going to be able to eat it. plus, disease in different places, if i brought a bunch of ducks to someone in Spain the ducks might cause fatalities because of the different environment and diseases that is in one country and not another. as well as the fact if the animals have diseases and it then wipes out loads of animals of that species. therefore, you can't appease everyone and share food to everyone as we don't necessarily have all the supplies and help everyone in LIC's.

  • highspirited_world | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 16 Nov 2022

    Although sharing food between countries and different areas of land is a common idea brought up for a solution on world hunger, many things have to be taken into consideration:
    For those countries who do provide enough food for everyone, do you think that is really their responsibility to supply and share with countries who do not have enough food for their own population?
    Can some countries afford the expense of 'sharing' their food without the usual economic benefit they would gain from selling their produce?
    Could this also be the fault of large food chains using great masses of land in LIC's (low-income countries) who are struggling with the food crisis in order to grow food for their own businesses while giving very little back into the local economies?
    Is it too late to tackle the world hunger crisis by just 'sharing', does more need to be done in order to solve or prevent the numbers from further increasing?
    How would 'sharing' food actually work, when does a developed country know how much of its produce is going to be enough to meet the supplies of its population and the supplies demanded from set trade deals. How would they know when to stop their production and focus on someone else's?

  • splendid_potato | Govt. Girls Higher Secondary School B | Pakistan 16 Nov 2022

    Food is not being shared because we don't want to care for those who are hungry. Had not been we careless, we would have made strategies to feed them. Though UNO points out that the food crisis hit areas around the globe - but even then the problem is unresolved. Why? This is because just sending aid one or more times is taken as sufficient instead of providing means and strategies to the hunger-hit countries. Rich and technologically advanced nations should take measures to produce crops in hunger-hit nations by bringing areas under cultivation. This can be done by providing them with technology and skills to the people. Institutes in such nations for training their youth and farmers should be opened. If some nation is war-torn, peace should prevail through the efforts of big powers. Once the situation is made conducive for progress the hunger-hit nations will become self-sufficient in the food production sector.

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

    Of course there is enough food for the whole world, but some problems enter in the meantime, most of them are due to politics between countries, endless problems and wars, which are unnecessary. As we are all human beings on this earth, we have to stand hand in hand, to cooperate and forget all problems, to help each other and become hand in hand. Let there be a little peace in this world so that no one remains hungry. Do you agree with me or not? And why? I would love to see your response and discuss

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

    Since I was little I couldn't eat normally if there was a hungry person near me, that's why I always choose to share my food, every time I see a hungry people I just think why they don't have the food they need,
    Perhaps because we are eight billion people on earth, food is not enough for us.

    But no, when I got older, I researched and I know that more than 9 tons of food is thrown away every year. While there are those who go to bed hungry.

    So maybe if we think about it a bit before we put on our plate what we can't finish.

  • accurate_chocolate | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 17 Nov 2022

    Why can't we just share?
    In my opinion, every person in our world provides enough food, because he cannot provide a large amount that allows him to share, and this applies internationally because most countries, especially Arab countries, are able to provide only the needs of their people and cannot provide enough food to share with other countries other

  • opinionated_bee | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 18 Nov 2022

    I think that if we have enough food in the world for everyone, that we should share but I think it is difficult to do that. It would be tough because some people just don't have access to any food resources and for some people in land-locked countries, it may be hard to even get to them to give them any food because of how far away they are and maybe even depending on their location/environment. Another reason may be that some countries have too much conflict going on in the countries or their government can be too corrupt; their country can be too dangerous to transport food/goods into. Practically, it can be problematic in some instances.

    We should start sharing food and stop wasting food because other people and many countries need food. We also need to stop making too much food at the same time because it won't be sold and will end up being wasted. Some countries have enough to export to different countries, but they don't because of cost of shipping out over the world. However, there are organizations that are trying to combat the food crisis, such as the World food Programme, a United Nations run organization which is trying to end World Hunger (Number 2 of the 17 sustainable development goals established by the UN). I believe that our world's governments should use some of their money to ship food out to poorer countries to help organization like the World Food Programme in their goal to end the World Food Crisis. It is also thought that the USA wastes 40 million tons of food every year (about 30-40% of the countries purchased food), compared to only 20.4 million tons in Mexico, this unneeded purchased food could have been shipped to a country struggling with the food crisis. I know there is money in waste, but this is already a problem that is escalating fast.

  • steadfast_queen | Shri Natesan Vidyasala Mhss | India 18 Nov 2022

    After getting into discussions and analysing the exact situation, I understood that we do have more than enough food to feed the people over 8 billion. In fact, the world's half of the land is used for agriculture to feed each and every beings in this world. We do have the facilities and technologies to know where the food is deficient and help them by transporting the required items.
    Then definitely a question arises from everyone's mind, I.e. Why cant we just share?....yes, why can't? I too had that question and started gathering information. I got to know that the reason for increasing food crisis among our population is due to conflict between the countries
    For example: countries like Ukraine is unable to report

  • aware_leaves | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 19 Nov 2022

    There is enough food to feed everyone on Earth. The problem is not the lack of food, but rather the inability to get food.Greed, selfishness, hatred and neglect spread in our world, so the person thinks only of himself, ignoring the pain of others. The amount of food that is wasted daily is enough to feed millions of hungry people around the world, but unfortunately humanity has disappeared and we no longer share anything. The rich get tired after eating and the poor get tired to eat

  • enlightened_currant | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 19 Nov 2022

    When it comes to food, people just think about themselves just like me :). But also I think that sharing some kinds of food for the people that they are out side my country would be a danger thing because what is those people didn't like my traditional food of my country what if the food is expired and I'm poising the other people?

  • strong_weaver | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 20 Nov 2022

    There are 8 billion people on the globe, and if they shared and distributed food, there would not be so much hunger, instead of wasting food and throwing it away, we can benefit the poor with it, but unfortunately not all of people in this life think about it and throw away excess food instead of giving it to the homoless people. We can also help cats and dogs who live on the street by feed them because there is no one take care of them and protect them on the street. We always have to share, cooperate, and put our hands in each other's hands by helping everyone.

  • imaginative_boysenberry | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 21 Nov 2022

    I think people can't share because if people share they can:
    - not have enough food and starve
    -might catch or give diseases like COVID 19
    -start to fight about what they want and what others want
    It might also be ok to share food because:
    -you will have enough of everything
    -you can try different foods
    -you will have fun and be silly with food.
    This is my opinion but if you think something else it is ok.

  • affectionate_cookie | Govt Girls Higher Secondary School | Pakistan 22 Nov 2022

    In this world,only developed countries have enough food for everyone but under developed countries dont have enough food for everyone.As we know,most people of this world are fully selfish,they live for themselves only.So with this mentality how people could share food with needy?
    Only some kind hearted people are doing this sharing task and I think because of them,poor people are surviving with the meal, in this world

  • willing_woodpecker | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 22 Nov 2022

    I agree because... I think that food is not shared out of fear of wars, as countries hoard food to provide it to their people

  • dedicated_trombone | Ormiston Bushfield Academy | United Kingdom 23 Nov 2022

    the thing is we cant share food that easily. first of all, if a HIC offered a bunch pork to a country with a high population of people that practice Islam, then they will not accept. not every country can eat the same foods for different reasons. additionally, it does cost quite a lot to and export high quantities. Additionally, sending out food to other countries has a bad impact on the environment. you say that sharing food will solve the crisis but it wont because there will still be people out there who die from starvation. a lot of richer countries and people tend to be more selfish and not help out as much as they should whereas the poorer people tend to want to help more but they cant since they may not even be able to feed themselves. basically what im trying to say is that it is difficult to share food and even if people did, it still wouldn't solve the food crisis completely

  • funny_lute | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 23 Nov 2022

    There are many reasons why people cant share. First of all, many people this days are dealing on white collar jobs. People feel that Blue-collar workers, which are those who do manual labor and are paid on an hourly or piecework basis, is a bad job or makes people look down on the person. If everyone goes for white collar jobs how do we concentrate on the agriculture. Although there are technologies that have made the agriculture easier but people still think backwards and refuse to go into such jobs. People cant share because they feel the money they earn from this white collar jobs is for personal purposes and not for distribution to people.

  • decisive_glockenspiel | Beit Hanoun Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 23 Nov 2022

    What is the cause of the food crisis? The first of these reasons is the wrong division of labor and desertification, which led to poverty, famine, malnutrition, the spread of endemic diseases, and civil problems. Let us propose solutions to improve economic conditions, first, agriculture, which benefits people in meeting their needs, second. Helping developed and developed countries Thirdly, charitable volunteering, which requires assistance according to the person's ability to do so, and the poor person must search for work tirelessly to find a living.

  • reflective_journalist | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 23 Nov 2022

    My own opinion says..... Food sharing may be helpful to remove the food crisis but some countries cannot provide the right amount of food to their population. There are a lot of reasons why some countries are unable to share food. So, so I will say some of the reasons that lead to problems. These reasons are;1. Politics 2. Conflicts 3. Natural disasters First, politics: Government programs around the division of food products and consumption affect the cost, space, and safety of the food force, both locally and internationally. At a general level food policy work affects farmers, food managers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers and if the government plans on agriculture are good it will help in growing more crops then it will help in sharing food. Secondly, conflicts: conflicts between countries, and religion even between sects can be a reason for not sharing food. People have bad feelings towards people from different countries and sects, so they do not share the good. Thirdly, natural disasters: Natural disasters can be a reason for not sharing food, as if there is a "flood and rockslide", they can be a reason for preventing reading for days or even months. Therefore, food could not be shared from one city to another.

  • illuminated_llama | Cheam Fields Primary Academy | United Kingdom 24 Nov 2022

    We can't share because it is hard to send food to different countries especially if the food is sky rocketing in price.
    We also can't share because if the food are raw then it will Carry disease to more countries.

  • composed_meteor | Michael Faraday Primary School | United Kingdom 24 Nov 2022

    sharing food is a way of showing kindness

  • aware_leaves | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 24 Nov 2022

    There are many reasons why sharing food is impossible, including:

    *Storage methods:
    As some products, such as food, are greatly affected by the change in the temperature of the place where they are stored, so they spoil before they reach the specified destination.

    * Food waste even within the same country:
    It is difficult to transfer food from one country to another, but within the country it is possible, but despite that, we find many hungry people, and this is all because of waste, irresponsibility, and a feeling of others. Thousands of tons of food are wasted every day. Wouldn't it have filled the hunger of millions of hungry people???

    *Politics and economics:
    As the economic and political blockades on some countries make its residents unable to buy or secure their needs, and this is what increases famines.

    * Wars:
    Some wars do not allow the passage of food, so it may be contaminated, and it may not be in the interest of war to feed that group, so they deny them food.

    * Religions:
    There is a conflict between some religions, and they do not prefer to share food with the other group, because each one believes that it feeds an unworthy person.

    *Natural accidents:
    Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, and even floods prevent the ability to transport food, which makes the state unable to secure its food for days or weeks, and so that food that must enter has spoiled and thus will cause poisoning.

    It is true that some consider leftovers as mere waste, but this may be the reason for someone's life

  • straightforward_shark | Castle Mead Academy | United Kingdom 24 Nov 2022

    Sharing food would be a possibility but considering the fact that somebody could interfere with the food or it may not stay fresh during the time it takes to get from one place to another it may not be a great idea. Also if the food was passing through an area where there were civil differences or general disagreements would the food make it safely? If a country or place were suffering from a lack of food and they reach out to another place or country it could potentially take food away from others.

  • careful_badger | Lyons Hall Primary School E | United Kingdom 25 Nov 2022

    food prices have doubled by price extremely so sharing would be amazing to do but there isn't enough food around the world to share really so it's hard i think there should definitely be more donation for food to donate there is a few that i know of but there should of course be more.

  • reflective_journalist | Rafah Prep A Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 25 Nov 2022

    In fact, the world has a great potential to feed everyone out there. The world population has reached nearly 8 billion. This is what I always think of when someone asks me about a solution to the food crisis “why can’t we just share” On the one hand, countries like USA, UK, Germany and many developed countries have enough food and a lot of it goes to waste in restaurants and even homes. On the contrary, countries such as Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia are not able to provide the basic components for their population. Reason: ## Shelf life: Many products cannot be sent worldwide due to their expiration date or storage problem. ## Political reason: I don't know much about politics a bit, and I'm pretty sure it plays an important role. (If anyone has an opinion on this please share with me) ## Food Waste: Food waste is one of the hardest wastes to deal with. On a daily basis a ton of food is wasted if we take precautionary measures on an individual this could be beneficial but more importantly the government should do something to deal with this waste in an ethical manner. Waste for us can be a life saver for others

  • generous_flute | College Edouard Manet | France 26 Nov 2022

    I'm not an expert but I think we can't just share because the majority of states are in debt. For example, Fance has got a debt of 1 762 billion euros, the debt of Japan is 8 736 241 800 000 billions euro and that of the United States of America is 1 848 772 200 000 billions euros. Therefore they can't pay for food because their debts would increase. They can't because of economic considerations, they also can't because of ecologic considerations. Indeed, if we transport food in an other continent we will polute the air and the oceans. Therefore we will destroy the ecosystems. Finally they can't just share because in those countries there are food crises. For example, in France there is inflation so the French people are chocking and they can not buy what they want. The only solutions would be to stop overconsumption, food waste, the pollution of the air and the ocean and global warming. They are the reasons of the food crises. Animals die because of the pollution, because they eat plastic, so the humans can't eat them. The global warming causes droughts, therefore people can't grow crops anymore.

  • eager_seed | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 27 Nov 2022

    On a planet as a whole, we are producing more food than our global requirements. Of course land and water resources are finite but technological breakthroughs has always kept food production systems more productive to produce enough food. Scientists are now developing vertical farming systems to partially take care of finite land and water also since these systems get water from the air . There are however two problems yet to be efficiently taken care of.
    Better logistical systems are needed to supply food from food surplus areas to food deficit areas.
    Current Agriculture production systems are mostly environment unfriendly so may degrade land, water and air quality. We need to promote “Good Agriculture Practices” (GAP) to take care of this problem.
    Bottom Line: Yes we can produce enough food for all and can feed every one provided distribution systems are also improved.

  • broadminded_cookie | Kibeda School | Sudan 28 Nov 2022

    The world has the ability to feed everyone here today, but some parts of the world do not put that effort in to help stop world hunger. I have seen some places and individuals who really try and help to stop world hunger and food waste, the English football player Marcus Rashford once payed for 27 million meals for the homeless and hungry in the United Kingdom and I have also seen a restaurant that makes you pay for your leftovers to reduce the amount of food waste so instead of wasting your food, you could give it to the poor or save it for later. But what the world has become, it is not easy to give as we have gotten used to taking and not giving, if we gave a lot more, we can reduce the amount of hungry people and stop global food crisis.

  • composed_cloud | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 28 Nov 2022

    Actually, in the world there is enough food to feed everyone and more, because nature is rich in resources that suffice all the inhabitants of the earth with comfort, but with an overview we see that there are many countries that throw huge amounts of food while there are who go to sleep hungry, this is one of the reasons that caused the problem in nutrition.
    But despite this, from my point of view, the government in the country plays an important role. In my opinion, hunger and poverty are a product of the country's failed politics. This is something I noticed recently in my country, Lebanon, after being exposed to the economic crisis, widespread unemployment, high prices and poverty, we began to see people searching for their food in the garbage containers.
    In sum, the planet earth is full of resources that suffice all its inhabitants, and it is divided among all countries according to the area and population number of each country, but the extravagance of a part of the people by throwing food is like to take a morsel of food from the poor's mouth and throw it in the garbage containers.

  • fascinating_forest | Shohour Public High School | Lebanon 29 Nov 2022

    In fact most countries, governments give money to the leaders to distribute food according to the areas they manage to give to the needy now like in Uganda the government gives money to Members of parliament and you can find that most MPs use the food for their own benefits and give very little to the communities of which this food can't last for more than 2 days in one home and this is because of having corrupt leaders.
    Then we also have rich countries like USA, England, Russia and many others which have a lot of food but just waste it like the produced food can get rotten because of selfishness yet they could simply donate some food to some under developed countries like Uganda, DRC and South Sudan because most people are dying of hunger and if the above countries would help these poor countries by now this world would be far.
    And also as they say "The food you are wasting could help others

    People are very greedy, most people are out there are broke with no money. Of course we can give out free food and things but those things are very valuable. If everyone had enough money to buy enough food for themselves prices and many more things would go up to more expensive prices because again after we finish the food to us about a couple months prices will end up going up again.

  • hopeful_trumpet | Riverdale Middle School B | United States of America 29 Nov 2022

  • comfortable_octopus | Riverdale Middle School B | United States of America 29 Nov 2022

    Why can't we just share the food? I actually think we could share the food with the world, but we won't because of enemies and conflicts between countries and the greed for money. Other countries don't just give us gas and necessities for free. we have to trade things to get what we need.

  • exuberant_bee | Riverdale Middle School B | United States of America 29 Nov 2022

    ;There are many answers but I believe the most applicable one is greed. Even though there are organizations such as The World Food Programme that's whole purpose is to eradicate world hunger, it isn't enough. Roughly 783,700,000 people are suffering. There are a lot of rich or financially stable people that could help the cause but they simply choose not to. A lot of those people waste food that could have been put to use and it is true that one has control over what they want to do with what they paid for, however what they choose to do could affect someone. Even though one doesn't know the person one should stop and think.

  • peaceful_lemon | Riverdale Middle School B | United States of America 29 Nov 2022

    I think that countries that are rich in resources and food or countries that are much more developed than other countries should share, or donate some food to countries that are being impacted by the food crisis. I'm not saying that these countries should just give away most of the food they have stored, or that they shouldn't be paid or given something in return for the large amounts of food they are giving to struggling countries, I just think that they should give as much food as they can grow or process in a year or less.

  • outstanding_huckleberry | Riverdale Middle School B | United States of America 29 Nov 2022

    I believe they don't share because some people have grudges and some are money hungry and they have trading problems.We always see our benefits.
    As individuals we always demand reward or price against every grain of food.
    In my opinion the reasons of not sharing food are;
    1- Low level of morality of rich people
    2- Class difference
    3- Irresponsible use of resources
    In conclusion,we can decrease poverty by opening organizations that help people with grudges to donate food since some of them waste food. People can also donate to this organization such as canned goods and money.

  • breathtaking_ferret | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria 30 Nov 2022

    This topic got thinking because in the are a lot of countries and each country has a specific type of crop it produces, but in the world we live in nothing comes free because every country is trying to grow their own economy, like in Nigeria almost all the states have a particular crop produced both at commercial rate or for personal consumption for example yam, rice, oil palm, garlic, groundnut, cassava, maize etc. But now most of this producer lack consumer because most of the supplier of goods are form rural environment so for them to be able to access international buyer, but the issues of sharing food globally nobody will go to the farm suffer to produce a particular crop and will want to just give it out for another person to consume without him/her having anything in return.

  • agreeable_dusk | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory 30 Nov 2022

    There is no doubt that poverty is one if the most important reasons people to go bed hungry. As a matter of fact, many of my friends can not afford preparing sandwiches to eat during recess time at school. The area I live in is considered of the poorest ares in my city. People live in big extended families with tens of mouths to feed while recieving the minimum wages if there is any. My teacher always says " sharing is caring". We share sandwiches with our classmates and we donate money to help them buy what might stop their hunger even for a short period of time.

  • charismatic_river | Rex Mill Middle STEM School D | United States of America 30 Nov 2022

    Well for starters some people don't like sharing when it comes to anything. Food costs money and most people feel as if they can make money and purchase food then others can as well, even though it may not be as easy for others. There are a lot of cruel people in the world who won't think about others in need when they have some time to give back and feed the ones who need it the most.

  • conscientious_orange | Michael Faraday Primary School | United Kingdom 01 Dec 2022

    Although people can share food, many countries do not ,as their food is only for their country. If they share, then the people living in those countries would like to leave. Then others don't get any, so the Government buys many products so people stay and get more food than needed. Sometimes people don't eat the food they buy and it gets wasted and rot when people in other countries have to survive on small amounts of food.I would prefer to see countries co-operating more.

  • terrific_shrimp | Pointe South Middle School D | United States of America 02 Dec 2022

    the countrys can share but most countrys are very very stinge so like north korea so people that want to go to north korea can't because korea is very very dangerest becuase due to the continuing serious risk of arrest and long-term detention of U.S. nationals,and very little amount of countrys don't trade with them with food because they are a red flag and there stingy.

  • chatty_statement | Pointe South Middle School D | United States of America 02 Dec 2022

    I think that sharing food around the world is not easy sometimes because the countries has to be ok with people being ok with people sharing with their people but also like USA, UK and more developed countries have so much food and a lot of people wasted in restaurants and in houses so we have take our food for good because when we need our food we will not have it.

  • shrewd_history | Pointe South Middle School D | United States of America 02 Dec 2022

    I think it's okay to share, but people don't have much food to share with other nations and I think the problem is that not everyone would want to share what they have fought and worked hard for with others. The other problem would be that the world economy could end up collapsing because everyone works for what they want and what if the whole world was free?
    What would happen if food was free?
    If life were perfect, you would have the money to pay for your operations, money would not be a concern right now. The most important things in life are free, although this does not mean that they are easy to get. In fact, they cannot be bought even with all the gold in the world.

    Some wars do not allow the passage of food, so it may be contaminated, and it may not be in the interest of war to feed that group, so they deny them food.

    * Religions:
    There is a conflict between some religions, and they do not prefer to share food with the other group, because each one believes that it feeds an unworthy person.

    *Natural accidents:
    Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, and even floods prevent the ability to transport food, which makes the state unable to secure its food for days or weeks, and so that food that must enter has spoiled and thus will cause poisoning.

    It is true that some consider leftovers as mere waste, but this may be the reason for someone's life

    Really We can share but others have a spoiled mind on their own food and don't think to share at all. I'm not saying that you need to share, It's just that I don't see many people share, I'm saying that We sometimes need to remember that others don't have much at home to eat.

    Either way We've got to share with others that are poor and have the human needs that others do.

    People also don't share because they don't like how someone does something or looks like which is oddly Offensive to others. We've got to stop throwing away food that you don't want which you could share with someone else that likes that food. These are most reasons we don't share with others. Sadly we sometimes forget someone wants food and maybe could ask people who maybe want that food that you could share. I'm not saying that you shouldn't eat that food you got to eat yourself, Im saying you should at least eat that food unless you don't want to, You don't have to force yourself to eat it, You could share it.

    The problem of food shortage has appeared clearly in recent times, and there are many reasons for food shortage, such as the massive increase in population growth that exceeds the state’s capabilities in providing food, the spread of wars, the lack of food, the division of the world into developed and developing countries, the lack of various natural resources, and the elimination of The main developmental resources of developing countries, the poor distribution of resources between members of the same society, and the people of countries into two classes, the rich class and the poor class

    The population has lots of food that could feed everyone for the rest of their lives. we do have lots of spare food and that spare food could feed all the homeless people in the world for at least three months.

    I think we should just share because imagine how you would feel if you we on the streets and no one gave you any food. I just think it would be better for the world if every one shared.

    I know some countries don't have enough food to feed every person in their country but at least try.

    we should share food because it safe's people's life's and it safe's money. Some people in some different country's don't have no food and not good because they mite die. Maybe we can send some food to food shop's and have that food sent to them.
