According to U.S. News & World Report, on Feb. 7 Pope Francis addressed some 500 experts via video, seeking commitments from governments, organizations and individuals to resolve issues such as food security, food waste and biodiversity.
The experts are working on a document – the so-called Milan Charter – aimed at raising awareness and proposing solutions to issues including hunger, obesity and food waste. The document will be presented to agriculture ministers meeting in Milan, Italy, in June, then presented in October to the secretary general of the United Nations.
Officials at Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, commend the Pope for his statements. They urge people to stock up on nutritious, good tasting food and take steps that would dramatically cut down on food waste.
All of the food in Food4Patriots’ 72-hour, 4-week, 3-month and 1-year emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. It is kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. The food has a shelf life of 25 years.
Among the ways individuals and families can stop wasting food, recommended by 4Patriots LLC Partner Allen Baler, are:
Make a specific list of items needed before going to the supermarket and stick to it. Don’t be a victim of impulse buys that often end up being tossed out. Eat dinner leftovers for lunch the next day, and maybe even for dinner the next evening if there is still food left over. Go through the panty and freezer to find food items that are nearing their expiration dates and put a meal together with them. Eat before going grocery shopping. A hungry shopper is more likely to buy food that he or she will end up throwing out. Make fewer trips to the supermarket. The more trips that are made the more food will be purchased and possibly the more will be thrown out. If food that’s nearing an expiration date won’t be used, donate it to a non-profit food pantry. Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.” Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help patriots become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.LinksImagesContact
