The Lost Food Project - Busy Feeding Malaysia

According to the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), over 2 billion people do not have regular access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food, and nearly 690 million people are hungry - up 10 million from 2019. It's also expected that the COVID-19 pandemic could add between 83-132 million people to this number, depending on the economic growth scenario. Working in their own way to combat the double crisis of food wastage and hunger, is The Lost Food Project (TLFP), who have been rescuing surplus food from Malaysian supermarkets and placing it in the hands of those who need it most. In conjunction with World Food Day today, we speak to Mohd Syazwan bin Mokhtar, the General Manager of The Lost Food Project, about how they've responded to challenges brought on by the Covid-19 crisis, and also what needs to be done on a policy level, to combat inefficient food disposal.
