A third of the world’s food production ends up wasted every year, while this quantity of food would be sufficient to feed the world’s poor, even in rich countries. There is no miraculous solution to end up with the paradox of food waste but local initiatives can offer some solutions. A French non-profit association created in Lille in 2010, the “Tent of Gleanors” (“La Tente des Glaneurs”) challenges the issue of food waste with the idea of “gleaning”: it is aimed at redistributing food which would be wasted to “gleanors”, while respecting their dignity.
