"Food loss" refers to the food that is still edible but is thrown away. About 1.3 billion tons of food are discarded in the world each year. This is about one-third of the world's production. We are not unaffected by world hunger, when we think of the possibility of how this vast amount of wasted food could be reached to those who are suffering from hunger.
To reduce this "food loss", in France, the law is enacted in 2016 that bans the disposal of food in the country's supermarkets and requires that unsold food be donated. Violations will result in a fine.
What could each of us do, to make that happen? For example, have you ever been forced to discard food without checking the refrigerator because it inadvertently passed its expiration date? Checking the content of your fridge often and eliminating waste is another initiative we can implement right away.
A little bit of care of our action could be the power to save the world.
