I Do not waste Food Anymore....

Recently I experienced something that made me to take
a strong decision of not to waste food. Now I want to
share the same experience in this post. I go to school
in the weekends to teach children (Teach India).All
these children are from nearby slum areas whose parents
are poor. That day I am teaching UKG class about good
habits, In order to make the class interactive I started
asking questions to the children, So one after other I am
asking the question "Weather they had their breakfast or
not". A seven year old who was very active and interactive
in the class said she hadn't done. When I asked the question
why? she was silent and not even looking at my eyes. Then I
saw her eyes, they were filled with tears, Actually she was
not crying but she was feeling hungry but she is not willing
to express that food is not available at her home in the morning.
So she is waiting for the lunch that would be provided in the
school. The same kind of tears I saw in a hungry begging boy
whom we provided food instead of money. Then I realized that
only hungry people knows the value of food.

Nobody has the right to waste the food when so many people go to
sleep with empty stomach.
