Hi my name is Sean and I am a 6th grader. Whenever we hear about hunger or people starving we just think how terrible and we don’t do anything about it! To solve the hunger problem I believe we need a better distribution of food. Why not donate some of your food to somebody who actually needs it? A cash donation to buy more food, why not? These are things we can do to help solve this problem. Also since obesity is such a huge problem in our country, why can’t we eat less (thus losing weight) and give that food to the people who need it? Another solution could be the government monitoring how much food you can buy, and then deciding how much you get, based on hobbies, number of people in your family, and a variety of other factors. Think about it, do we really need all that food?

Hi guys, my name is Dustin, and I’m 17 residing in California, US. After doing a carbon footprint check, my greatest carbon emissions came from the food i eat. Being a full time athlete and student, it has come to my attention that I really have to take into account what I eat on a daily basis in order to perform to the best of my physical and mental ability. On average, I would need to get at least 3000 calories a day to sustain my active life style, but in spite of that, I feel like the choices that go into the 3000 calories a day, could be much more beneficial to the environment. The majority of my diet consists of a variety of meats with some carbohydrate on the side. I hardly ever go full on vegetarian for any given meal…. It is important to have a well balanced diet, that includes all food groups, so my question is, What is the perfect balance of meats and vegetables to fit an active lifestyle? ^__^
Hi my name is Yazmin Montes de Oca, Im from Mr Reinhardt 6th period class @ Oakland High School. And I think People should realize that not everyone is lucky enough to have food every day. If we compare our country to others the U.S. has the highest rate of obesity, when other countries barely have food for every one on that country. for a example Africa’s children are dying from hunger and I bet that’s not the only country with that problem. So people think how lucky you are to have food every day.
Hello, my name is Eric and I am a high school student. We recently tested our carbon footprints and found out how much food consumption contributed to carbon footprint. My carbon footprint isn’t incredibly high, but I could lower it by purchasing locally grown food. However, it is difficult to convince my mom to do because of the high costs associated with locally produced food. My school does have a small vegetable garden that produces and sells food occassionally.
