Unnecessary Hunger

Famine x Waste = Terrible

Well worth a read: This thought-provoking piece on how famine in East Africa is made all the more absurd by the waste in that region. Shrinking prices lead to no market for some crops. And because there is so little irrigation in use, a draught worsens the situation.

But, as we’ve long suspected…poor distribution is the real problem.

    I know that Charlie says “Winning,” not “Winner,” but I couldn’t help myself.

    Sorry.
