1000 Flowers for the Planet - #639 Observe World Food Day
World Food Day (16 October) is a day to focus on hunger around the world and what we can do to eradicate the problem. There is enough food to go around, particularly when you think of the amount of food wasted in developed countries – enough to feed those in developing countries. One third of the food produced around the world is lost or wasted. It’s a crime. So take today to think about how you manage your own food resources and what you can do to make things better around the world to help people who are struggling for survival and their access to healthy food. You may volunteer your time at an organisation that provides food parcels, or donate some money. Look for a World Food Day event in your area and participate. Spread the word via social media to get more people aware and on board. There is enough to go around if we use our resources more wisely, but until money is no longer the driving force, and caring for others is the driving force, we won’t all be fed equally.
