In the slums of Jakarta, Indonesia’s poor are getting a taste of how the upper class live thanks to a new program called a Blessing to Share that aims to solve its mammoth food-waste problem by supplying leftover wedding dishes to some of the poorest members of society.

在印尼雅加達的貧民窟,窮人得以品嚐上層階級的生活,因為一項名為「分享恩惠」的新計畫,會把婚禮上剩餘的菜餚,分享給社會上最貧困的族群,藉此解決大量浪費食物的問題。

 

Even as it struggles with poverty and malnutrition, Indonesia bins more edible food per person than any other country except Saudi Arabia, according to an Economist Intelligence Unit survey last year.

根據「經濟學人資訊社」去年的調查,雖然印尼面臨貧窮、營養不良問題,但平均每人丟棄的食物,比沙烏地阿拉伯以外的所有國家還多。

 

The country’s food waste problem can be partly chalked up to local hospitality, which calls for ample helpings at all celebrations. Hosts often err on the side of abundance, and many hungry revelers’ eyes are bigger than their stomachs meaning lots of uneaten food.

該國的食物浪費問題有部分原因出自當地人的好客成性,每到慶祝場合就會準備大量食物。主人家寧可有備無患,許多飢餓的賓客則是人心不足蛇吞象,導致許多食物被剩下來。

 

"We are trying to close that gap between the rich and needy," said program founder Astrid Paramita, who hopes to expand to other cities and also start sourcing edibles from company meetings.

計畫發起人亞斯崔德.帕拉密塔說:「我們正試著消弭富裕和貧窮階級的隔閡。」她希望將計畫推廣至其他城市,也開始從企業的會議上取得食物。
