It is estimated that 40% of the cooked food is wasted in Pakistan. According to the former Director General Pakistan Environment Protection Agency (Pak-EPA) even more food is wasted in Ramazan, contrary to Islamic teachings.
The Islamabad Devcom Leo Club has been formed by 20 students of various institutions in order to launch a campaign against wasting food in the Federal capital and to raise awareness about other environmental and climate change issues. The wastage of food also causes various social and environmental implications including the shortage of food. As a result, the food prices rise up to alarming level. Despite, this food can be given to those living in slums and those who don’t have food at all. Great measures must be taken in order to overcome food wastage in the country. — Kech, Balcohistan
