Are you the person who buys the necessary amount of food for your proper sustain? or are you the one who buys extra food just because there is an special offer even if you do not need it?
Well if you are in the first group, congratulations!, you are contributing to hunger alleviation, which according to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) could be achieved if just 25 percent of the wasted food each year was saved instead.
