An important reminder.

Sending surplus food to charity is not the way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

“While giving food that would otherwise go to landfill to hungry people may be a convenient part of a solution to reduce greenhouse gases, it will do little to ensure the well-being of the four million Canadians who are food insecure. Reducing food waste by feeding hungry Canadians is a simplistic solution that is deeply problematic and morally distressing. It provides the comforting illusion of a solution to hunger while the underlying problem — poverty — is not addressed.” Important reminder from Elaine Power in The Conversation. https://theconversation.com/sending-surplus-food-to-charity-is-not-the-way-to-reduce-greenhouse-gas-emissions-115685
