Every day thousands of families, stores, hotels, restaurants and even schools throw away impressive quantities of food. Why? Because they stock up too much food products which expire within a short time. Can’t we realize how much food is wasted?
Psychologists say that people shouldn’t go shopping when they are hungry because hunger amps the desire to fill the shopping cart with too many products.
Wanting to limit as much as possible food waste, I have identified two solutions which I have presented to my classmates during counseling class: avoiding unnecessary shopping or offering the excess food to needy people.
