Food Wastage: India Fares Much Better Than the US and Europe

"Sometimes, when I am finished with my meal at a marriage ceremony and go out to throw my patal (made from leaves) in the dustbin, I watch with great regret and concern when a team of urchins would descend to look for leftovers. After these children are done away with, I find the dogs moving in. At the same time I can spot a number of crows waiting for their turn. The clamour for food security extends beyond us, the well-to-do.

1. If possible, I try to use food twice before I dispose of the remnants.
I make broths from bones from poultry, meat, and fish.
I save vegetable scraps for the broths.
When I juice, I save the pulp of fruit and vegetables to eat again.
