Hunger in the world, but still too much food wasted

As early as 1976, the United Nations declared October 16 World Food Day. The main purpose is to raise awareness of the global and local public with the fact that many people around the world still live in need of this basic good.
Slovenia and other EU Member States work closely with the Food and Agriculture Organization and recognize its key role in the fight to eradicate world hunger. Attitudes towards discarded food differ significantly among young people compared to older people. Nearly 690 million people worldwide are malnourished. That is why in Slovenia, too, educational institutions are trying to instill in young people an appropriate attitude towards food.
The planned consumption of food is also important in inns or. restaurants. In just one year (from 2018 to 2019), the number of malnourished people increased by 10 million, and in the previous five-year period by 60 million. In 2018, 5,3 million children under the age of five died as a result of starvation, the ministry said. There are fewer undernourished people in Slovenia, but there are still many social hardships of one kind or another, which volunteers are also trying to solve.
The current state of hunger is also at odds with the goals set by the United Nations Member States in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Therefore, different decisions on nutrition are needed and swift action is needed by all stakeholders from the state, the private sector and organizations, and to farmers and individuals.
