Salem Marathon

No Food Waste Marathon?

India is the second largest food producer covering 10.04% of the total World’s food production. But, at the same time India ranked 97th among 118 countries in which the Global Hunger Index (GHI) survey was organized in 2016.

Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year approximately 1.3 billion tonnes gets lost or wasted. Food losses and waste amounts to roughly $ 680 billion in industrialized countries and $ 310 billion in developing countries.

Throwing away the edible food benefits no one. Not only could the food have gone to someone in need, but the resource cost is tremendous. The food wastage quantity can be reduced only by creating awareness and sensitizing people on “Food Waste” and by cultivating the behavior of treating “Food as a Common resource” to all human on earth. Also, they have to be motivated through several awareness activities to share their edible surplus food with needy and poor.

So, we have been organizing awareness sessions and events in communities, educational institutions etc. to sensitize people about the value of food and the hunger level in our society. As a part of our social awareness events we have organized,

  • Food Waste auditing sessions in Government, Corporation and Private schools
  • Food Waste Awareness sessions in several educational institutions
  • Community engagement activities such as awareness campaigns
  • Awareness Marathon (organized in 2015 in Coimbatore and Tiruppur)
  • Awareness rally with voluntary participation from like minded volunteers 

No Food Waste Marathon 2017 is planned with the main objective of taking the awareness on “Food Waste” to grass root level in the community by engaging various stake holders of the city and joining hands with Urban Local Body, like minded individuals, organizations, institutions etc.
