We always consider food waste as a big issue. Some have excessive amount of supply, while others don’t even have enough. Also, obviously, there’s an evironmental issue. Actually, there’s an answer, and it’s a lot simpler than you might suspect:
One man in Saudi Arabia’s city of Hail has put a fridge outside his home and called his neighbors to fill it with the food they can’t eat in a day.
The mysterious man said he needed to save the poor from requesting help since many are embarrassed.
This respectable action got viral after Saudi Muslim cleric Sheik Mohamad al-Arefe tweeted:
“I’ve always said the people of Hail are generous. A man puts a fridge outside his house for leftover food; an indirect act of charity for the needy. Oh, how I love you, Hail!”
Sheik al-Arefe has 8.6 million supporters on Twitter. This tweet previously had more than 5000 retweets, and it’s not actually surprising. The kindness is wonderful proof that humanity is still alive.
Netizens welcomed this action and requested individuals who have a lot to make more bigger portion and offer fresh meals with the poor.
Many expressed that this is a “great act of charity.” We just hope that this good deed doesn’t start and end in one city, in one area. We can’t take care of the world, however, we can start helping the individuals who are close to us, yet more often than not, they are unfortunately invisible.
It’s a win-win arrangement. Useful for the humanity and for the climate!
