Puerto Rico FEMA meals

This is an actual photo of a FEMA Meal Kit provided to Puerto Rican victims in the aftermath of their devastating hurricane, and is yet another travesty. When will our government begin to truly provide the necessary aid our citizens deserve?

I do not know about you, but canned chicken and Cheetos do not constitute and entree for me. And  candy bars don’t make the most nutritious dessert. It reminds me of when the government insisted that ketchup was a vegetable for school lunch menus.

What this actually amounts to is a shameful disregard for common morality. We should hold our officials to at least a minimum standard of decency. And this doesn’t meet it.

wasting food in a hungry world

Food waste is a matter of life and death.

Wasting food does not directly cause members of our family to die. But, make no mistake, it is a contributing factor.

We daily waste enough food to keep entire families alive. And the saddest part of that is we never even give it a thought.

Wasting food in a world of hunger is one more sign of our lack of community and our lack of caring for one another.

One step toward ending hunger in our lifetime is to be more mindful of our wasteful patterns of consumption. We all need to waste less food.
