How many mouths will a silver spoon be able to feed?
With nearly 100 million people in the Philippines, I think of the number of people in hunger. I also think of children suffering from hunger and malnutrition.
Yet there are people who can still afford to consume in excess of what they need. This ends up putting a lot of food in the trash.
I am sharing this photograph taken by my 3-year old daughter during my brother's wedding in Mindanao last November. This silver spoon reminds me of a hungry stomach. It also reminds me of those whose stomach is full yet can still afford to put unused extra food in waste baskets.
