Every day we (all mankind) hope to eat, whether we gather and prepare the food ourselves or someone else does.
But, consider these facts:
795 million people, right now, don’t have enough food. That’s about 1 in every 9 people on our planet. And most of them are in developed countries.
3.1 million children under the age of 5 die each year because of poor nutrition. That’s 45% of all deaths among children under 5 in the world.
And…yet…40% of edible food ends up in the trash.
So, what can we do about this?
Each time we prepare with care, and not too much…we do something about this.
Each time we practice fresh, local, scratch…we do something about this.
Each time we sweat all the temperatures…we do something about this.
Rie and I recently had the chance to visit a school dining program not operated by MG. We saw food prepared hours before it would be eaten; very little scratch or batch cooking; canned corn, canned soups, canned beets, too many cans to mention…
Every day…we can make a difference by being different.
