THIS WEEK IN FOOD NEWS

recipe for disaster

Can #RecipeForDisaster Help Us Stop Wasting So Much Food?

The statistics are familiar — roughly one third of the food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted — almost half of all the fruits and vegetables we grow. At the same time, almost a billion people around the world go hungry. 
 
A new social media campaign from the World Food Programme (WFP) wants you to turn food waste from a recipe for disaster into a, well, #RecipeForDisaster. However, #RecipeforDisaster isn’t the first social campaign to draw awareness to food waste, and in our age of constant stimulation, it’s hard to keep anyone’s attention for too long — even on issues as pressing as food waste.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
