Food is a favorite for everyone, I am sure. We regard it as one of the most important ingredients of life besides air and water.
But there are many instances we see it as any other commodities we take for granted, to misuse it by neglect when excesses lead to wastes.
Personally, I always treat what I eat as a blessing that I see to it I do not waste what others may consider as leftovers. It is much better to eat less than leave in your plate something you don’t feel eating. In my mind, anything wasted could equate to feeding other hungry people without anything to fill their stomachs with.
As a farmer, who helps produce the raw material for human consumption, I feel guilty when I see people throw around good food. The cash that paid for it is wasted, which by common sense it could have bought other basic needs.
If we could only compute the amount of money spent on food wasted around the world, I think we could feed the hungry for a long time. Conflicts that began from hunger could be readily mediated to stop.
