Blog Action Day: Food

Today, Sunday 16th October is Blog Action Day. This is an organised event where bloggers around the world post about an important topic on the same day. This year the topic is food.

Thank you to Jarrod’s mum, Melane, who told us about Blog Action Day! Jarrod has also published a post for Blog Action Day here.

Recently in 2KM and 2KJ we have been talking about how lucky we are to have so much nutritious and delicious food at our fingertips. When we were learning about some of the children who will receive our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, we found out that many of them don’t get to eat three meals a day like we do.

We have been thinking about how lots of people in Australia actually have more food than they need! It is sad that so much food is wasted in our country.

We watched this BTN story about food wastage.

We couldn’t believe that one out of every four bags of groceries we buy is wasted!
