After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”
brilliant. and sometimes the ugliest produce tastes better.
I remember seeing a story on the news sometime ago that hundreds of millions of fruits and veggies are thrown out by grocery stores just because they don’t look pretty.
So someone took the ones that were about to be thrown out and sold them at a cheaper price.
This is the coolest shit ever. I never even knew about this problem.
I kinda always figured the less pretty fruits and veggies were what they made the juices and pures and such with @.@ Not that I didn’t know they waste tons of food every year just chucking it so that they can keep the supply low enough that demand will keep the prices up -__-;
