The Problem of Food Waste and Hunger In Hong Kong

The issues of food waste and hunger are often topics portrayed by the media as problems primarily found in underdeveloped or developing countries. However, these issues also exist within the developed world. With a lack in waste management regulation, Hong Kong's level of edible food waste has drastically increased in correlation with the number of individuals who are hungry. If the issue of food waste is not appropriately dealt with, by 2018, many will continue to go hungry while the volume of waste exhausts the country's landfills.
