World Food Day

The 16th of October just ended for me, but I would like to make a note that this was World Food Day (WFD or klick here for the Dutch website). The new day, October 17th, is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (klick here for a Dutch link). At Taste the Waste you can see the trailer to the documentary on how much food is being wasted, while 1 billion people are still hungry. It is a sickening documentary that almost made me cry. More importantly, it makes me aware that I, you, all of us together, can make a difference and we can start today. If we throw less food away, if we are less picky, people in developing countries may be able to afford to buy food. Doesn't that sound worth looking into?
