The Business of Hunger

Sadly, only those without money are the hungry ones. The world grows and produces enough food to feed its entire population, but only for those willing to buy it and pay the high cost of distribution.  To really solve the world’s hunger problem we must dig deeper into the waste business. Food and waste go hand in hand. Sometimes it’s cheaper to toss something than to recycle or give to others. Perhaps, when we stop enterprising food, hunger will stand a chance!

“We have failed to end hunger using the traditional recipe that saw hunger as a technical problem, requiring only that we produce more. We’ve failed because we’ve underestimated the need to empower people and hold governments accountable.”– Olivier De Schutter
