Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste

Today, September 29, is International Day of Awareness of Food Loss and Waste, and we’d like to take a few moments to reflect on this important theme with you.
For families facing hardships, the simple luxury of having nourishing food readily accessible every day is nothing short of a dream, an aspiration they long for. However, there are countless individuals who take this essentiality for granted, often neglecting the consequences of wastefulness and its detrimental impact on both the environment and marginalized communities.
When it comes to food and waste, becoming aware of our habits is the responsibility of each of us and can even become an altruistic practice if we focus on the good fortune we have.
Every morsel of food is the result of the efforts and commitment of those who have helped put it on our tables, and recognizing that not everyone has the same opportunity to access the food necessary for proper physical and mental development helps us develop a deep sense of gratitude.
And it is with this deep sense of gratitude that we can put ourselves at the service of others, of the disadvantaged families who aspire to self-sufficiency and a better future, through our latest pilot project.
Together, let’s spread a culture that encourages the values of gratitude, compassion, solidarity and altruism by turning our attention to those in need.
