How can you participate to #StopTheWaste?

We produce enough food to feed everyone, yet one in nine people go to bed hungry every night. At the same time, one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted.
We must stop this! That’s why the United Nations World Food Programme launched #StopTheWaste, a global movement to help fight food waste and highlight simple solutions we can take to prevent this.
Watch the video to see how you can #StopTheWaste.

Become part of the movement:

Search your fridge or pantry for that item that you’ve forgotten about (but is still safe to eat!)

Snap a selfie with your item (do not forget to eat it)

Share your photo on social using #StopTheWaste and challenge three friends by tagging them in your post.

Take your pledge one step further by sharing your food waste recipes or host a dinner party and encourage others to do the same.

How the World Food Programme works
to address food waste

In some parts of the world, food is wasted because we produce or buy more than we can eat. In other parts of the world food is lost during harvesting, transport and production. WFP helps smallholder farmers get their food to the people who need it most, providing new technologies for storage and transportation that prevent crops from spoiling prematurely and connecting them with markets.

Watch this short video to learn how WFP is working to end the post-harvest loss of food in Malawi.
