We have all been reading articles in TIME and various other news media that the world food prices are shooting up because of food shortage. Let's do everything from our end to not waste any food!
- Cook just enough so that no food needs to be thrown away
- Preserve leftovers and eat them promptly in the next meal
- Purchase bread and other grain items by carefully looking at the expiration date to make sure you can consume them before they spoil
- At a restaurant, order only as much as you can consume. If you know that a restaurant serves more than you can eat, either ask them to reduce the quantity (and tell them you will still pay the same) or make sure you carry the remaining food home. Restaurants are the biggest source of food wastage!
Device your own ways to add to the list and encourage your friends to do the same! :-)
Love & Jai Gurudev,
