“In a hungry country, we don’t have the right to waste food,” Slow Food Advocate Says
The slow food advocate Jam Melchor is urging the Filipino people to stop throwing and wasting food because we are living in a hungry country.
Nowadays, many people are just throwing and wasting foods on their plate although hunger is one of the major problems all around the world.
Jam Melchor, the founder of the Philippine Culinary Heritage Movement is now planning to address the issue.
Melchor is now planning to educate more people to properly utilize the food served on their plates.
The advocate explained that Slow Food is a grassroots movement promoting food sustainability.
He also said that it’s not the opposite of fast food but slow food is more of the lifestyle.
Jam also stressed that in a hungry country like the Philippines, people don’t have the right to waste food.
“We want to educate young chefs, particularly academes who are grooming future chefs, because they need to understand that in a hungry country, we don’t have the right to waste food, and you have to know your role in the food chain—from producer down to consumer,” Melchor said.
