My Big Idea: Eliminating Food Waste and Hunger in America
Transcript of My Big Idea: Eliminating Food Waste and Hunger in America
Their public image would be greatly improved. There is an immense interest in “going green” and helping the community right now. Businesses could market the fact that they are reducing food waste and hunger in America and gain a whole new group of consumers. How Would This Benefit Businesses? Who Would Transport the Donations? Once the donations are made, volunteers would transport the food from the restaurant or retail store to food pantries and shelters in the community. This plan is barely asking anything extra of anyone. No one would have to actually produce or buy extra food to donate. All of the donations would consist of food that would have been produced either way, and would otherwise be thrown in a landfill. We're Not Asking For Too Much! There is a solution to the hunger problem and food waste problem in America, and this is it. We must fight one problem with the other in order to eliminate both. It can be done simply and inexpensively if Americans can work together. Without relying on donations from struggling consumers, we could supply millions of hungry Americans with the wholesome sustenance they so desperately need and stop contributing to the climate crisis.
