The world wastes a third of the food it produces. The UK wastes over 7 million tons every year. There are answers to this problem. Schools could teach children about food waste. Supermarkets should stop throwing away vegetables because they are the "wrong" shape. Finally, "sell-by" dates need to change.

It is unacceptable that people are going hungry and food is being wasted. It is bad for the environment because it wastes energy. The food in the ground makes a gas that is bad for the environment. Supermarkets also throw away good vegetables if they are a strange shape. They should sell these vegetables.
