Minimizing Food Waste in Ramadan

Over the period of years, the society and people have become more wasteful due to rise in income, living standards, consumerism and affordability. But affording does not mean that wastage should increase as it is contrary to the Islamic principles of sustainability.


We need to change our attitude of not laying the table with more food than people can eat. This is not hospitality and welcoming the guests. We need to develop better food habits and respect for the Mother Nature. The problem of food wastage lies in socio-cultural sensitization and behavioral change.
