When you wake up in the morning and look at yourself in the mirror, who is the person looking back? Is it someone who changes the world? Is that the person you want to be? Well, first you have to believe that you can make a change in the world. Because you can.
So, the real question is: what can I do? The answer is not easy, but you can do small things every day that will make a difference in the end. Start with your kitchen. Those people who are more aware of their food behavior also waste less food. Some of the solutions to look into are smart storage, portion sizes and creative food preparation, to name a few. Here is where you can make a difference.
This is the reason why knowledge is power. By knowing where to look, what to eat and how to store it, you can save money, food, and resources. In your own kitchen is where you can utilize your food surplus and make delicious meals. It is all about planning, shopping smarter and storing the food correctly.
This should be the trend. When people gather and talk about their lives, they can also begin talking about food waste. This could be the start of awareness for people. People like what is trendy, people like change and people like knowledge. When people talk about the food waste issue, you can start by making a simple review. So, the next time people ask “what can we do about it?”, you will be the person who knows.
We do not know what we have until it is gone. Food knowledge can give another person direction and meaning. It is essential. This is why rescuing food is more than just a social issue. It is life. So why waste it?
