Meeting with the specialists of the Food Bank
On 10th June at our ward we participated in workshops led by the workers of the Food Bank in Cracow. The Food Bank is the institution of utility, which daily opposes food wasting and fights undernourishment. We discovered that it’s a huge problem, although not very noticeable in everyday life. In Poland yearly consumers throw away over 2 million tons of food.
We also discovered that many young volunteers work in the organization that help with the food-raisings.
The most controversial was the information that in order to produce 1 kilogram of beef 5 thousand liters of water are used.
There are more and more donors (food-producing companies, farmers) involved in counteraction of undernourishment.
At the meeting we solved a quiz about the proper way of storing food in the fridge.
