Herbalife Nutrition Brings Healthy Diets Awareness to Communities for World Food Day 2019
“Hunger is a rapidly growing global crisis and we hope that by educating people about all the ways they can help, including reducing food waste, we can help build a world where everyone has access to quality food,” said Dr.
The education-driven campaign is part of the Company’s Nutrition for Zero Hunger initiative, which, in collaboration with nonprofit partners, focuses on providing access to healthy foods, improving nutrition education, identifying sustainable food resources and helping raise awareness of the global hunger crisis. In September, the Company launched its Nutrition for Zero Hunger global initiative to help end world hunger, aligning with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #2, which calls for bold action to end hunger in all its forms by 2030, as well as solutions to achieve food security and improve nutrition worldwide.
One of the major contributing factors to global hunger and food insecurity is food waste, with 1.3 billion tons of food produced globally being lost or wasted. Some of the tips on how to reduce food waste being shared by
- Know Food Expiration Dates - Understanding expiry dates for food can help reduce throwing out food that is still good. A “sell-by” date is the date that food has to be pulled from store shelves, a “use-by” date is suggested for best flavor or quality, but many foods are safe to eat after this date.
- Get Creative with Recipes - Soups, stews and salads are great options for many leftover veggies and grains. For example, overripe tomatoes can be added to a homemade sauce and brown bananas are perfect for your morning smoothie or shake.
- Plate Up in the Kitchen - Food left on the plate is most commonly thrown out. Instead of family style, where dishes are on the table, consider portioning out meals in the kitchen to avoid over-serving.
- Donate to Those in Need - Consider donating extra food items to local food banks, food pantries and charities. You can find local food banks accepting donations through WhyHunger.com
