The Real Junk Food Project

¿Sabéis cuánta comida se tira a la basura en la actualidad? Según un estudio del Instituto de Ingenieros Mecánicos británico elaborado en el año 2013, tiramos entre un 30-50% de la comida que se genera en el mundo. Produce escalofríos pensar en la cifra, ¿no os parece? Ante este despropósito y ante la falta de verdaderas medidas de los gobiernos actuales a nivel mundial, están surgiendo voces y actuaciones para frenar el exagerado exceso de comida que tiramos. Estas iniciativas no pueden llegar a ser suficientes, pero son totalmente dignas de elogio.

Do you know how much food is throwing out actually? According to a study by the British Institute of Mechanical Engineers developed in 2013, we throw out 30-50% of the food that is produced in the world. Create a sensation of chills to think about the number, not? Against this nonsense and before the absence of the present governments worldwide to promote real measures, they are emerging voices and actions to stop the exaggerated excess of food we throw out. These initiatives may not be able to be enough, but they are deserving of a big compliment.

Una de estas iniciativas nos ha sobrecogido. En Leeds, una ciudad del norte del Reino Unido, ha surgido un brillante y hermoso proyecto “The Real Junk Food Project” promovido por un joven emprendedor, Adam Smith. Este joven genio está colectando la comida y alimentos de los supermercados, restaurantes, bares, etc. de su ciudad que van a ser desechados como residuos para “reciclarlos” y cocinarlos en su local dando como resultado ricos y sabrosos platos para aquellos que se quieran acercar a probarlos, a cambio de la voluntad o de algún servicio que deseen realizar.

Lo más increible y genial del proyecto es que Adam no está solo. Está con una buena cantidad de voluntarios que se han unido al proyecto para colaborar. ¡Esperemos que dure y que se extienda a otras geografías de nuestro planeta!

The most incredible and great of the project is that Adam is not alone. He is with a lot of volunteers who they have joined to the project to collaborate. We hope this project went on and extended to another places in our planet!

  1. Great article! Thanks for reminding me to spend more food to the people who need it…
    In Germany every year food of an worth of 22 milliards Euros is thrown away…70% of this food is thrown away by private households…that are shocking facts!
    In Germany we have an initiative called http://foodsharing.de
    there you can share food and give it away for good use when you have too much or you go for holidays…
    All is better than throw the things away only because they have little bumps or are 1 day over best before date…

      • Yes I like it a lot, you’re always on my mind with talking about 2 of the worst problems of our planet…waste and now food overproduction l!
        People don’t think
        People don’t care
        And people sadly don’t share…normally not!
        We have too much of it our supermarkets are full and our behaviour is like fast food…fast, not healthy and non efficient…so we throw it all away!
        Germany is a very bad example!
        How is it possible that millions of people in the world are suffering for hunger…and at the same moment we throw the things away?
        So, thanks again for your great article…
