99857 Sign of 400000 Goal

I prepared this petition on the topic of "food wastage" as a part of our Team Project component. The purpose of this campaign is to raise public awareness about food wastage and how serious of a problem it is.
Paradoxically, over one-third of the food produced for human use each year - around 1.3 billion tonnes - is wasted or squandered across the world. Not only are all of the resources used to produce the uneaten food wasted (land, water, labor, manufacturing, etc.), but when food waste goes to landfill, which is where the vast majority of it ends up, it decomposes without access to oxygen and produces methane, which is 23 times more deadly than carbon dioxide and causes air pollution and other disasters.
According to a report, 40% of the food produced in Pakistan is wasted each year, amounting to 36 million tonnes, and 43% of the country's citizens are food insecure, with 18 percent experiencing severe food shortages, resulting in Pakistan being classified as a country with serious hunger levels.
Sign this petition to:
1. Always plan your meals, develop a shopping list and adhere to it, and prevent impulse purchases.
2. Look for a local food pantry where you may contribute extra food or cook a meal for a neighbor.
3. When purchasing fresh food, always be sure to check the use-by dates. Rather than the best-before dates.
4. Finally only purchase what you will be able to utilize before it expires.
