Around the world, and estimated 800 million people, including 160 million children under 5 years old do not have enough food. However, in the U.S. and other rich countries, we have too much food. About 64% of U.S. adults are overweight. That’s almost 200 million people in the US alone! It is also estimated that half of the food produced each year in the US is wasted. Why is there such a difference between rich and poor countries, and what should be done about it?
Two-thirds of food wasted in the US should be exported to other countries that need food. To export food to Central America from the US, you would use solar-powered cars, trucks vans, etc. The government would pay for the solar panels. On day they would run on solar energy. At night they would run on gas.
What do you think of my idea? Do you have a better one?
