What can we do???
- Raise awareness among food industries, retailers and consumers
- Reform quality standards to accept food items not quite perfect in shape or appearance
- Educate, so that no consumers, anywhere, feel they can afford to waste food
- Find good and beneficial uses for safe food that is presently thrown away
It might not sound like much, but even small steps add up! Let’s get going!
