All food has a value

Written by Lawrence

We all need food to live

Think of the farmer who grew the food

Think of the person who picked the food with their hands – fruit, vegetables, caring for animals

Think of the person who drove the tractor – cereals (wheat etc), cotton

Think of the people who drive the food – sometimes thousands of miles

Think of the people who put it in their shops to sell

Then think of all the people who need food to eat

All these people will tell you that food is not free

All food has a value

Now decide what you will give for the food

    Love this! I have a real issue and a “thing” about not eating the meat on a plate. Something gave it’s life for us to be fed. So, we must not waste food, any food, leave nothing for the bin, EVER! I’m a little overweight too…
