Subject: Campaign against food wastage in marriage ceremonies

Sir,

This letter to your esteemed daily is intended to express my experience in a campaign against the trend of food wastage in marriage ceremonies. 

Recently from our school, a campaign was organised to make people aware of the high food wastage rate in community gatherings, especially in marriage ceremonies. Under this campaign, a procession was organised. There we marched holding handmade placards and posters with messages reflecting significant findings of many surveys. After returning to school we took an initiative to collect the leftover food from a marriage ceremony that day and distribute that food among the needy and homeless people. 

In our country, around a million people are not able to have proper food even twice a day. In such a situation food wastage is nothing but sin. Here the significance of such campaigns lies. If you allow this letter a little space in your esteemed column, more people will get inspired and become aware and hopefully, we'll be able to eradicate the menace of food wastage. 

Yours Sincerely,
Rajesh Dutta

Subject: Food wastage must be stopped

Sir,

I am writing this letter to your esteemed daily to express my concern over the issue of food wastage in community programs, especially in marriage ceremonies.

Food wastage in large gatherings has become a common phenomenon in our country. According to an esteemed, around 20% of total food gets wasted in all average marriage ceremonies. The same survey says that in our country the total amount of wasted food in a year can help to feed at least 2 million people. Moreover, food has its own value and is not meant to be wasted. But there is a serious lack of awareness of this issue among most of the people of the country. That’s why every year more than 60 million tons of food get wasted in India. 

Government must look into this issue quite seriously. Moreover, many NGO’s are also taking the initiative to collect the leftover food from marriage ceremonies and distribute them among the needy. Such initiative should be encouraged and the government should focus on making people aware of the dark side of food wastage.

Yours Sincerely,
Rumi Bannerjee

Subject: Plan of food collection and distribution and stopping food wastage

Sir,

I am a secretary of an NGO writing this letter to your esteemed newspaper to talk about our new initiative of collecting leftover food from community gatherings and distribute them among the needy people. 

We are living in the 21st century and still, 10% of our country’s population hardly get two meals a day. In such a scenario, we waste a huge amount of food in every alternative ceremony. The food wastage rate is the highest in marriage ceremonies. Almost in every marriage ceremony, 15-20% of total food gets wasted. At the same time, somebody is starving due to a lack of food.

Exactly here, our NGO is going to play a role of a medium. We are going to launch an initiative under which we will collect the leftover food from the ceremonies if we get informed and will distribute them among the needy people such as the homeless, beggars etc. I would like to request you to allow this letter a little space so that more and more people get aware of this initiative. 

Yours Sincerely,
Aditya Bansal

Subject: Action along with appeal is needed to stop food wastage

Sir,

Through this letter in your esteemed daily, I want to express my view over the appeal of the prime minister to people to stop wasting food on the occasion of national food day. 

Food wastage is a serious problem in our country. Almost in every alternative ceremony, we witness food wastage. At the same time, many people are starving and even dying due to a lack of food. Experts are uring for a long time to the government to take some initiative to put an end to food wastage. Yesterday, on the occasion of national food day, the prime minister of our county appealed to the people of the country to stop food wastage and explained its significance. 

The appeal of the prime minister is indeed important and will definitely have some positive effects. But only the appeal is not going to put a complete end to food wastage. The current situation demands active action from the government. The government must pass some regulations prohibiting food wastage and launch awareness campaigns on large scales. Moreover, they can also encourage the NGOs who work actively to collect and distribute the leftover food among the needy people.

Yours Sincerely,
Barun Goswami
