Faith in Action - Food Waste
The extent of food wasted and thrown away in our consumer society is a scandal.
It is an insult to the poor and the hungry, not just here but around the world.
Around two thirds of all food wasted is wasted in the home.
So out of respect for what the Creator has given us, and out of awareness for the hunger pains so many suffer, let us try to eliminate food waste.
Only buy and cook what we need, use all left overs, educate our families that food is precious.
We pray “Give us this day our daily bread”; let us link this to our action by consciously not wasting food.
