#RecipeForDisaster: Join the Movement!
In a world where one in nine people will go to bed hungry tonight, food waste is a #RecipeForDisaster.
That’s because while the world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people on the planet, one-third of that food will go to waste each year. In the U.S., that proportion is even higher.
So today, the World Food Programme (WFP) is launching #RecipeForDisaster, a social media movement that seeks to spotlight the issue of food waste—and the simple solutions we can all take to tackle it.
As Chef José Andrés and Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin have demonstrated, creating your own #RecipeForDisaster is simple! Just follow these steps:
- Open your fridge and grab any leftover food or ingredients that are close to their “use by date.”
- Prepare a meal using those ingredients. Be creative!
- Share a video or photos of your new dish on social media using the #RecipeForDisaster hashtag, then nominate three friends to create their own by tagging them in your post.
