Wast­ing food

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

SYED TALHA IR­FAN

It is very dis­heart­en­ing to know that in Pak­istan peo­ple fill up their plates but eat lit­tle and thus are to­tally wast­ing the food but never bother them­selves to pro­vide this food to the poor.

It was dis­cov­ered that 40 per­cent of food is wasted in par­ties in Pak­istan. Ac­cord­ing to UN and FAO all around the world tonnes of food is wasted while around 952 mil­lion peo­ple are suffering from hunger. Ac­cord­ing to FAO the wastage of food in a year equals half of the world’s an­nual ce­real crops.

In a wed­ding party for in­stance, there are more than 25 dishes and half of all dishes are wasted. I re­quest peo­ple to stop wast­ing food and throw­ing the food in dust­bins, in­stead they should pro­vide the food to poor peo­ple. — Karachi
