Future Food 2050 Takes on Food Waste

Future Food 2050 Takes on Food Waste #FutureFood2050

I have never been truly hungry.  I have never gone to bed hungry, or worried how I was going to feed my family. My daughters have grown up with a full pantry and refrigerator.  Fortunately, most all who read this will nod in agreement, but not everyone in this world is so lucky.

Lack of safe, abundant food is a growing problem worldwide, so when FutureFood2050 contacted me to see if I would help spread the word of their newly formed program, I signed on immediately. While I did receive a thank you gift for my time, I only share information I feel will benefit you as well.

About Future Food 2050:
“Envision what the very best minds in food science can achieve when they work together: providing each and every person on the planet with access to a safe, healthy, abundant food supply, both today and tomorrow. “ 
With the world’s population expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050, Future Food 2050 addresses the hard question: How will we feed them all in an environment of dwindling resources?
Think about it for a moment. Most of our children will be in the prime of their lives 36 years from now. They deserve reliable and sustainable food sources. They deserve to be able to say what most of us say: I have never been truly hungry. 
That’s why I signed up for Future Food 2050’s newsletter to learn how I can help. I invite you to visit their website to learn more. They cover a broad range of topics including sustainability, health, food safety, food culture and more.
Their site is full of thought-provoking insights and facts- for instance; did you know that 40% of the food in the U.S. is never eaten? With 1 in 5 children in this country classified as food insecure, how can this be?
This and a couple of other articles grabbed my attention, and I’ll be sharing my thoughts on them soon, so please stay tuned. 
If food waste and sustainability is a concern of yours, please take a moment to visit Future Food 2050 , sign up for their newsletter and share the link with others in your life.

    This is a great cause. When I lived in Las Vegas, one of the casino owners wives sent backpacks filled with food to some poor area schools. They would fill them up with more food on Fridays so that they weren’t hungry on the weekend. This had a big impact on student grades going up!! It makes me sad that there are hungry children out there that need more food to do their best.
