Don’t Waste ‘World Food Day’

Today is World Food Day, and this year’s theme is “Sustainable Food Systems for Food Security and Nutrition.” That’s not quite the same thing as food waste, but it’s really close.

It’s a good opportunity to think about how fortunate most of us are to have regular access to food and to try to make our food choices as sustainable as possible. On that note, here’s a recent study on our foodprint (PDF) from the Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition. And if you’re looking for World Food Day events near you (in the US), look no further.

But in many cities across Europe and Canada, the Disco Soup(e) movement is kicking in with World Disco Anti Food Waste Day. These events bring together volunteers to prepare rescued food for a communal feast all the while enjoying some peppy tunes.

Here’s a bit more on these events, which make yours truly wish he was on the Continent, or at least in Montreal. Wherever you are, enjoy the day!
