Wasting Food

Publication date: 
June 2022

The trip made by food to our tables and to our garbage bins (if we don’t eat it), does not take place now in an isolated manner. We should understand that our relationship with food and the wasting of food affects the lives of the people of our planer, both of those who go hungry and of those who are poisoned by what we throw away. For that reason, the wasting of food falls into the category of sacrilege and finding a solution is turned into a question that affects not only the economy and health, but also religious and spiritual life. That is what is explained to us in this Pamphlet. The authors are members of the Higher Education for Social Transformation Project (HEST), promoted by the Conference of Jesuit Provincials of Europe (JCEP) and the Kircher Network.
