Thanks for the job,Sister Katie. Global food bank
We have been disappointed y the way our partners in the Middle East, particularly Egypt have handled the matter involving the Zambian food bank. Despite the contract signed, they have not been sincere to honour it by helping us have a good start a new food bank. We just hope they will aside anything to do with religion as Food does not look who belongs where.

Pérdida y desperdicio de alimentos Reducir la pérdida y el desperdicio de alimentos El hambre en el mundo está aumentando, sin embargo, aproximadamente un tercio de todos los alimentos producidos a nivel mundial se pierden o se desperdician. Todos tenemos un papel que desempeñar en la reducción de la pérdida y el desperdicio de alimentos, no solo por la comida sino por los recursos que hacen falta para producirlos. La FAO se está asociando con gobiernos, organizaciones internacionales, el sector privado y la sociedad civil para crear conciencia sobre los problemas y para implementar acciones para abordar la raíz del problema. La FAO también trabaja con los gobiernos para desarrollar políticas para reducir la pérdida y el desperdicio de alimentos.
