Thousands of Athenians have turned up to consume more than a ton of fruit and vegetables rejected by stores in an event that highlights the waste of food in advanced societies. 

數以千計的雅典人現身一場凸顯先進社會浪費食物的活動,食用超過1噸被商店丟棄的水果與蔬菜。

 

Despite the overcast sky, people lined up in a central square in the Greek capital on Sunday to eat briam, a casserole medley of vegetables, such as eggplant, zucchini, carrots and potatoes, as well as a dessert of fruit salad.

 

儘管天空陰沉,人們週日仍在這座希臘首都的中央廣場排隊,以便吃到烤茄子、櫛瓜、胡蘿蔔與馬鈴薯等綜合蔬菜的「布里亞姆」,以及餐後甜點水果沙拉。

 

The event was part of a global campaign called "Feeding 5000." The organizers, global non-governmental organization Feedback, received the vegetables from farmers after they had been rejected by stores because they were misshapen, but otherwise perfectly edible, they said.

 

這場活動是稱為「Feeding 5000」全球行動的一部分。主辦單位、全球非政府組織「回饋」從農民處取得蔬菜,這些蔬菜因奇形怪狀而被商店淘汰,但除此之外完全可食,他們說。

 

About a third of the annual global foodstuff production gets lost or wasted, Feedback says. AP

 

全球每年有3分之1的食物被丟棄或浪費掉,「回饋」表示。(美聯社)
