Oakridge International School Mohali adopted an initiative to reduce food loss in order to make a difference to the society and has successively recorded 0% food wastage for two weeks at its campus.Students and staff together also  took a vow to monitor the wastage around the campus right from classrooms to school cafeteria to reduce the everyday food wastage to zero percent. The senior students also campaigned across the campus for the same. Each of them who took meals from the school cafeteria contributed a meal for the cause. All contributions were donated to Prabhasra- an orphanage for the underprivileged.Ramanjit Ghuman, Principal of the school said that According to United Nations development programme, about 40% of food produced in India is wasted, where around 190.7 million people in India are undernourished as per the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) 2017 report. Under such scenario, food wastage is one of the severe threats to the growth of our nation. She further added that everything begins from within and hence students decided to initiate the practice of zero percent food wastage right from their campus. According to her wastage of food implies wastage of resources at every level. We  should sensitize the children to the fact that while on one hand there is hunger and poverty all around and many children around the world are suffering due to lack of food but on the other hand so much food lands up in the waste bin. We need to make a change in the circle of  influence and children to be empowered to feel that they can be the change makers as no effort ever goes waste.
