Yazmin Montes de Oca, March 14, 2013

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.

    I'm James from California, and I'm in 6th grade. I think that we are being too greedy, and we should take all the extra food we don't really need and instead give to it to those starving people. Though it would take a little time to adjust, we would barely even notice a difference after a few months. If we just cut down our food consumption by 10%, we would be lowering our carbon footprint, as well as feeding people who are much more needy. People already donate money, clean water, and clothes. So why not food?

    I agree with you James. Food is a necessity to daily life. Maybe, to help feed hungry, there should be more places to get food from. For example, we could have more soup kitchens. As Yazmin stated, Americans have the highest rate of obesity. Though in the U.S. there are still hungry people on the streets, and a much larger number of people in Africa. To lower our obesity rate and feed the hungry, we could create a policy where in resturants people can only order a certain amount of food. Shipping food to another place for the more needy in a place not capable of growing food will produce a lot of pollution, so we could build a green house or a farm imitating the needs of the plants to grow food for the hungry. It would be harder to give meat but they would at least be getting their dietary needs. We need to take action, so join the fight against world hunger.

Hi, my name is Kevin. I am a senior at Oakland High School and I was wondering, would growing our own greens help reduce the CO2 level and help slow down climate change?

    Yes because it would reduce the transportation need. For your school you should try planting an organic garden and have students and teachers take care of it. It would be a good community project and you'd have great organic vegetables.

    There isn't enough food because of some parts of the world, there's not enough resource too have food. Places like Africa doesn't have farms and factories that can produce food, but compared to the U.S we have alot of those everywhere and we can produce alot and sell it.

    I agree with you, Jerry. Also, some people just don't have enough money to buy food for their family. Other places may have money, but their country doesn't have enough rain to grow crops.

Eric Phung, March 4, 2013

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.

    Dear Eric, my mom purchases locally grown food without having to spend a lot of money by going to the supermarket.She goes every Sunday and buys lots of veggies and fruits.You could also try planting your own food at home if you have a garden. It will help!

Hi my name is Adam Evans and I eat a lot so my food consumption is higher than average. I think that is because I’m a pretty serious runner so I need the extra food.

I know that my carbon footprint for food, 660, isn’t incredibly high, but I really believe that I could bring it down even more. I plan to take advantage of the garden space that I have, I can grow food for myself instead of just for my rabbit.

I’m Candace Sibal, you can say I eat a lot because my food usage is 3800kg compared to your average Washingtonian which is 2704kg. But the difference between me and other people is that I’m not actually hungry, I just eat when I want to cause I’m bored and it tastes good. I feel like if I were president I would make there be an easier way to send my leftovers to Africa and places where people like to eat a lot of junk like I do.
