An initiative against food wastage was taken by students of the Environment Cell, under National Service Scheme, IIT Roorkee. Students from all the cells made a noble contribution by making posters for the aforementioned. The sole objective was to make people realize on how much food gets thrown unused every year and how much do we deprive the underprivileged of their basic rights to food by wasting it.
Malnutrition is a serious challenge for our country and avoiding wastage of food is the least we can do as fellow citizens. The posters were put up on the notice-boards of all Bhawans and several Departments. They served as an impetus to spread this noble message. The initiative under NSS was indeed a commendable attempt on part of our socio-ecological responsibility.
