Did you know that we waste up to 1.3 billion tons of food a year? That’s about $1 trillion USDs worth of food!
Not only is that a waste of money, but it’s a real shame too – there are over 800 million people who suffer from hunger and undernourishment and the amount of wasted food is enough to feed 3 billion people!
It’s safe to say that this is a massive problem that needs to be addressed and improved.
So what can we do about this? Well, The Halcyon Movement has just launched an exciting campaign around food waste!
Our objective? Increase awareness about the problem and encourage people to resolve to change their food purchasing behaviour in order to reduce our food waste as well as make available more resources for our hungry brothers and sisters.
