Cook Door have come up with the kind of initiative this society needs. It aims to stop people from feeling embarrassed to ask for the rest of their food to go. This will definitely help with Egypt’s food waste issue, and probably the hunger issue as well.
“The country not having a proper outlet to collect food donations results in a major waste issue.”
In Egypt, it is a fact that plenty of food gets thrown away and goes to waste. The country not having a proper outlet to collect food donations results in a major waste issue. When restaurants come up with initiatives like this one, they stop being part of the problem and help solve the problem a little at a time.
On the other hand, a huge number of Egyptians are in deep poverty and the hunger issue has been increasing dramatically for the past few years. While taking leftover food to go and giving it to those in need might not solve the issue 100%, it can help some individuals, and that is just as important.
“Still, some would rather this food goes to waste than them seeming to care about “leftovers””
The issue with all societies, not just Egypt’s society, is that many people feel embarrassed about asking for something like that. They are aware that they have paid for this food and that if they don’t take it, it will go to waste. Still, some would rather this food goes to waste than them seeming to care about “leftovers”. That is why an initiative like this is needed. People need to realize that not only is it their right to take the remainder of their food, but it can also help others!
All in all, we are proud of Cook Door for encouraging their customers to not waste food and help out those in need. This is the kind of work we hope to see more of.
