Food waste is a real disaster in a country where millions are going hungry. It pains when a small fraction of the population that is lucky to afford a meal, go about wasting the very rare commodity. Young children and mothers are crying for a meal that someone else could be throwing to the dustbin at this very moment. A meal that could save a life somewhere else.
It is important therefore to ensure we consume enough to avoid waste.

It is important therefore to ensure that we should consume enough to avoid waste. This saves us money and other resources that can be used in the future. Proper planning when going to shop for food guarantees healthy spending and it goes along way in environmental conservation because food waste contributes to global warming. The less we waste food, the better for our climate.
