Pope: Want to stand up against hunger? Change your lifestyle

2013-10-16

The Pope believes that world hunger is one of the most serious challenges faced by humanity. Once again he has denounced the so called throw away society that wastes food without a second thought. In a letter sent to the FAOs Director General, for World Food Day the  Pope gives a few recommendations.   


He notes that one third of the global food production is lost because of waste. A trend that seems to be on the rise. 

As a solution he recommends a change of lifestyle, including leaving excessive consumerism behind along with the idea of achieving 'profits at all costs.' 

The answer, he says, also lies in having an educational system that focuses on solidarity and dignity. He highlights that this very model is played out every day in the family, where one person cares for another, with respect. 

It's this model that should be applied at a higher scale, since in essence the family is the nucleus of society.
