Trash? or Treat?
SDGs action at Halloween event X food drive!
In Japan, 16.24 million tons of food is wasted annually, of which 5.22 million tons of food is discarded even though it is still edible. , the number of people who have difficulty in eating daily is also increasing. One of the actions to solve such food loss problem and poverty problem is “food drive”.
How to do a Halloween food drive is easy. After researching food banks and welfare organizations that accept food in the area and confirming the types of food that can be accepted, during the Halloween event, “Bring the food that is sleeping at home.” Just ask the participants with flyers and posters (let’s also tell the details of the food). Halloween in the SDGs era has changed from “Give me some sweets!” to “Let’s share sweets and food!”
