Food is good. It's our fuel, a joy, a comfort. World Food Day, today, is a reason to stop and be grateful for what the earth and farmers work so hard to provide; food doesn't grow on shelves.
Food doesn't grow easily, if at all, for nearly one billion peeps stepping on the very same earth that you and I explore each day. Compounding this fact, developed nations (like the United Kingdom and the United States) throw away roughly 40% of all their edible food.
We can change this.
Eat smaller portions. Keep your fridge a little less full. If fruits or veggies around your house are on the other side of ripe, make a smoothie or freeze them. Above all, practice mindfulness: eat locally grown foods whenever possible and pledge to learn about additional, easy ways to grind wastefulness to a halt.
