In Hungary, people waste more than 300,000 tons of food every year. The monetary value of the loss exceeds 170 billion HUF, which is 18,000 HUF per person. Food waste is also an environmental, economic and moral issue – the National Food Chain Safety Office (Nébih) told MTI on Friday.

According to the announcement, the United Nations declared October 16 as World Food Day in 1979 on a Hungarian proposal. The 41st event this year aims to raise awareness of the eradication of hunger and to encourage cooperation. (MTI)
