The central government’s push to add ‘prevention of food wastage’ in school curriculums and FSSAI’s ‘Save Food Share Food’ campaign aim to raise awareness about India’s food wastage crisis.

Incorporating Prevention of Food Wastage in School Curriculums

The central government’s directive to include a chapter on food wastage in the school syllabi is aimed at sensitizing and empowering young students to combat this problem. By instilling an understanding of the consequences of food wastage at an early age, we can foster a more conscious and responsible generation.

FSSAI’s ‘Save Food Share Food’ Initiative

The FSSAI’s ‘Save Food Share Food’ program seeks to encourage the donation of surplus food and reduce food wastage by facilitating collaboration among food distribution organizations and stakeholders. The initiative plays a vital role in ensuring surplus food is safely distributed to those in need, thereby addressing both food wastage and hunger.

Food Wastage Statistics in India

According to the Food Waste Index Report 2021 by the United Nations Environment Programme, Indian households waste a staggering 68,760,163 tonnes of food annually, amounting to 50 kilograms per person per year. The data reveals that 40% of food in India is wasted, equivalent to a whopping ₹92,000 crores each year. This wastage contrasts starkly with the reality of 811 million people facing hunger worldwide due to food wastage.

Summing it up

The inclusion of a chapter on food wastage in the school curriculum is a commendable step towards cultivating a culture of compassion and responsibility among young minds. As we unite under the ‘Save Food Share Food’ initiative, let’s actively combat food wastage to ensure a better future for ourselves and the generations to come. Together, we can make a significant impact in reducing food wastage and alleviating hunger, making the world a more sustainable and equitable place for all.
