Agosto 2018

The food you eat may be the most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. Ann Wigmore.

According to the FAO Food Loss and Waste Bulletin, Mexico loses 37 percent of its food, which represents 10.4 million tons per year. That amount would be enough to cure the hunger of 7.4 million Mexicans in extreme poverty and food insecurity.
