“You’re not throwing that bit of chicken away are you?”
It might be the little piggy in me, but I’ve always hated wasting food. To know that in 2011 30,000 children have died from hunger in just 3-months is absolutely appalling and too sad to think about.
I remember having a conversation with a friend years ago on whether God exists or not. His argument included that if God existed there would be no hunger in the world. Hunger in 2011 is completely man made. There is NO reason for any of the 6,852,472,823 human inhabitants of this world to starve. Political instability, poverty and changing weather climates and the fundamental reasons, but if we really wanted to it needn’t be the way.
I despair at corporations such as Pret A Manger and M&S who throw out perfectly good food at the end of the day because ‘health & safety’ regulations prevent them from selling post best before end - give it to the homeless at least!
Truth be told there’s a new F word in town. Fuck Famine.
