Food loss and waste is an ethical outrage. In a world with enough food to feed all people, everywhere, 690 million people continue to go hungry and 3 billion cannot afford a healthy diet.
Food loss and waste also squanders natural resources – water, soil and energy, not to mention human labour and time. It worsens climate change, given the significant role of agriculture in generating greenhouse gas emissions.
Let us work together to reduce food loss and waste for the benefit of people and our planet.
"There are lots of things that we want to be doing right now, but they aren't necessarily what we need to be doing right now - please make good choices.
There's so much you can do to protect yourself from getting infected and from passing COVID-19 on to others."
