Over the weekend, our Facebook friend Charu sent us the link to a TED talk on “the Global Food Waste Scandal”. It perfectly illustrates the scale of the food waste problem, and is incredibly enlightening. This talk touches on all aspects of the food stream, and highlights how a shift in how we think about food can have far-reaching effects on the entire planet. Fighting food waste is FlashFood’s mission, so we just have to share this video with you!
Tristram Stuart, the presenter in the TED talk, also runs a campaign to fight food waste called Feeding the 5000, to raise awareness about how much perfectly edible food goes to waste everyday! Check it out here.
