On Thursday, June 30, the Capricorn Foundation Food Waste Challenge 2022 launched!
The program seeks ideas for reducing food waste in Namibia. According to Reliefweb, from July to September 2020, approximately 428,000 people throughout the nation (17% of its population) were facing high levels of acute food insecurity or worse, including roughly 14,000 people in a state of emergency. Solutions to this problem would not only provide a basic need to vulnerable people, and especially growing children, but they can also have a positive impact on Namibian society by improving overall quality of life. While there are ongoing efforts to address this issue, the Capricorn Foundation Food Waste Challenge is looking for new possibilities that can tip over a pivotal domino in a problem chain, resulting in exponential benefits.
