People Go Hungry Because We're Spoiled Brats
Why are there so many in the United States WITHOUT Food?
I don't know because the food pantries are overflowing with food. Seriously. And you KNOW that people who COULD be taking advantages of food pantries are not, because there is a stigma attached. So their kids don't eat the poor people food, they eat cheap, empty food. They are malnourished and fat AT THE SAME TIME!!
My sister in law knows someone that works for a food pantry, where people can come and get free food. She gets the outdated, throw away stuff. She came over the other day and her van is FILLED with food. And I thought, "there are hungry people in this country?"
There are starving people in this world?
The amount of food that we deem inedible and toss away in this country is incredible. If you have ever spent any time in the back of a restaurant, in the kitchen, you would see the sheer volume of this waste. It's staggering, especially when you know that you are but one in millions of restaurants who are doing the same thing.
And millions of food pantries are dumping cans of food because of a cycle date, when people on the other side of the world would scramble for a meal like that.
We send back plates of food because there's a HAIR in it, like we're completely ignorant of,and disgusted by, the fact that a HUMAN made it. Food that some people on this planet will never, ever dream existed. And we scrape it into a huge trash can, filled with food.
It's truly horrifying, if you think really think about it.
Think about it.
NO ONE should be hungry.
