by Afouda's Hunger Initiative (AFO-Hi) category: Cause
The 12th Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 12) calls for the world to cut food waste in half by 2030. The United Nation hopes that if this goal is met, the standard of living will improve and there will be less hungry people on the planet. In Africa, almost 50 percent of the food produced is wasted. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the amount of food wasted on the continent is enough to feed 300 million people. The statistics of food production compared to hunger suggests that Africa actually produces more than enough to feed itself.
It is no longer a question of more food production, rather the continent needs to figure out how to maximally utilize what they have. Due to a number of factors, food is usually discarded, uneaten or lost at the stages of production, processing, retailing and consumption globally. However, in Africa, the bulk of wasted food is from post-harvest loss and consumer preferences.
Therefore, our message this year is “Don’t waste food…someone is hungry”
