When it comes to food, it is the quality as well as the virtue of the food that matter.
There is a beautiful vegan restaurant dedicated to promoting low-carbon food culture. The head chef lets Mother Nature decide the choice of ingredients, using every part of the local seasonal fruits and vegetables fully in preparing delectable dishes. The restaurant not only offers healthy food, but also cares about the well-being of the land and environment.
There is also a young man who dropped out of university to pursue his dream of becoming a chef and provide fresh, exquisite lunchboxes for schoolteachers. His meticulousness in every detail from buying ingredients to delivering lunchboxes demonstrates his determination to maintain food quality. Recently, he has even started a tuck shop in a secondary school offering lunchboxes to students, with the hope of changing the “lousy school food” culture with his cooking.
To eat virtuously, not only do you have to know your food, but it is also important to cherish them. Several university students launched a social enterprise supermarket especially to sell snacks and grocery items that have passed or are about to pass their “best before dates”. If you compare their goods to more than a hundred million similar food items that ended up in the landfill sites, what this small social enterprise can save is merely a drop in the ocean. However, regardless of how little they can do, they spare no effort in raising our awareness and reminding us not to waste resources from the Earth.
