Have a look in the ‘fridge!:
On World Food Day, World Vision urges us to make do with what we already have.
Date: October 16 2012
Give the supermarket a miss and make tonight's meal using what is already in the cupboard and fridge, World Vision is urging us today - World Food Day.
"We are always reaching into the veggie bin at the bottom of the fridge and finding sorry looking carrots and wilted lettuce. Today we're asking people to get in early and use what's available before it goes to waste,” said World Vision’s Dominic McInerney.
“Each year the developed world is wasting almost as much food as sub‐Saharan Africa produces. There is enough food in the world to feed everyone, but we need to be more aware of how we value food,” said Mr McInerney.
“Stretching ourselves in the kitchen and using what you already have is a great way of doing that.”
“Australians throw out 4.45 million tonnes of food every year. Bypassing the supermarket for a day and working with what we already have is a nice, simple way to remind ourselves of the value of food.”
“No food should survive past its use‐by date. World Food Day is the perfect time to reach for the back of the cupboard and put good food to good use.”
