When food is disposed of in a landfill, it rots and becomes a significant source of methane - a potent greenhouse gas with 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. Growing and transporting the food that goes to waste emits as much carbon pollution as 39 million passenger vehicles. - Forbes

CLIMATE CHANGE AND FOOD SECURITY: FAST FACTS
-Climate change is a threat multiplier for hungry and undernourished people.
-Countries with high levels of hunger are often also highly vulnerable to climate change, and have a low capacity to adapt.
-Climate change affects food production and availability, access, quality, utilization, and stability of food systems. In short, it impacts all aspects of the food system.
-Extreme weather-related disasters are increasing and reduce the yields of major crops.
-Higher levels of CO2 reduce the nutritional value of crops.
-The global food system contributes about one-third of greenhouse gas emissions. About ⅔ of food are lost and wasted from farm to table. These losses therefore exacerbate climate change without improving food security or nutrition.
-Climate change and conflict combined destroy livelihoods, drive displacement, widen inequalities, and undermine sustainable development.
-Ending hunger and undernutrition in a changing climate demands large-scale action.

The number of hungry people in Latin America and the Caribbean has risen by 30 percent since 2019 to reach its highest level in 15 years. More than 59 million people across the region currently are not getting enough to eat, according to a UN report from 2021.

Brazil, the region’s largest and most populous country, some 19 million people have gone hungry during the pandemic, and nearly 117 million – more than half the country’s population – live with some level of food insecurity.

Pears can easily get soft, from one day to the next. Although the texture changes, they continue being delicious and nutritious. In fact, that extra softness can give some extra flavor to bread or muffins. Next time you have a too-soft pear on your hands, explore some cooking options!!

Freeze your fruit! Out of the 1400 million tons of fruit and vegetables produced, 46% is wasted. Some fruits can spoil quickly, get spoiled very easily, just a couple of days after you bought them. To ensure less waste, this doesn’t happen, you can peel and cut them in pieces (if needed) and freeze them. They can later be used for juice, smoothies, marmalade, and more.

Apples can last a long time at room temperature or in the refrigerator. However, when they are very ripe, their texture becomes floury and the taste a little sweeter. Next time, don’t throw away that extra sweetness and use it to make a delicious apple pie, compota, or even cider! Just a Google step away.

When the grapes begin to ripen very much, they soften and can spoil quickly. To prevent this from happening, once they begin to soften, wash them, put them to dry and then store them in plastic bags in the freezer. To take advantage of them, you can make some jam, a sweet sauce to go with your meat, or put them on top of a fruit cake.

A whopping 3.8 million tons of citrus peels go to waste each year. Next time you’re about to toss them, consider turning them into CANDY! Candied orange peel makes excellent garnishes on desserts or with chocolate, or dip them in chocolate and devour at will.

Apart from our “on-the-ground” projects, Palms for Life works to raise awareness and understanding about hunger and poverty from a human rights perspective. Here are some significant numbers to keep in mind…Because basic human rights are everyone’s business.
