How we waste food…..

Even if hungry is being slowly erradicated in the planet, it is incredible how much food we waste in the “first world”.

New channels of distribution should be implemented to reduce this waste and make food available in the parts of the world where is needed.

The first world have the ways and means to end those episodes. It is a shame for all of us allow this to continue without act.How-The-World-Wastes-Food
