We aren’t the biggest fans of the vast majority of the United Nations’ actions. Their attempts to help are, in most circumstances, very poorly planned and terribly executed. That doesn’t even touch on the motives which are often questionable at best.
Despite all of that, they did something today that was pretty darn cool. Rather than the posh meals that normally get served to delegates when the United Nations is in session, they were served something completely different: food waste. Before you get grossed out, this is the type of food that most of us would actually enjoy. It was done to highlight the millions of tons of viable food that is discarded every year while we have billions of people starving.
