Food Waste Management for Swachh Bharat

Dear all:

Some amount of food tends to go waste in urban India. In cases of commercial establishments like caterers/restaurants the amounts of food waste is significant.

With this post, we would like your innovative ideas on how to minimize food waste for Swachh Bharat. Please share your inputs on how food can be recycled and how left over food can be channeled to feed the hungry there by reducing the amount of food wasted/thrown.

We look forward to your inputs!

It's the sensitivity or lawful enforcement that can curb this menace.
Citizens of India have to be sensitized to that much extent that they stop wasting the food. more

While dining,
1. Sometimes, people expect to get served good tasting food item, but later find out that it is spoiled instead, now since they have gotten into that restaurant, the manager will fight with them and get payment for it, but since it is not edible, they have to throw it. They may be new to the place, or the restaurant, so don't know where else to go, may be in so much of hurry that they can't go sueing the manager, or maybe something else.

2. Sometimes, even at home some people take pride in leaving some amount of food in the plate. When confronted, they will argue that they have eaten everything and nothing is on their plate. They argue that "it is none of your business", "why are you up to changing the world", "you have so many bad qualities, improve yourself first", etc.

3. Sometimes, it is a tradition to force feed the guest, albeit politely. When food becomes too much, the guest has not much choice, except to leave it on the plate, since the hosts continue to compel "thoda sa aur le lo, bas thoda sa" "aap ne to kuch ni khaya", etc. more  
There is a Gujrati hotel in Panvel (Mumbai) where I sometimes dine. In this hotel there is almost zero wastage of food. What they do is simple. They give small amounts of all dishes initially in the plate with may be 2 small chaptis. Later the waiters bring the dishes and serve the dishes as much amount the customer needs and as many times. The customers eat the quantity they need in 2 or 3 servings and I have seen nothing is left over. This unique method can be followed in all other hotels. more  
I remember way back in 1993, in then Calcutta, Mother Theresa's Organization used to collect any excess food items from restaurants, Five star Hotels and even private functions even late at night and distribute to the needy. This practice should be encouraged.
Also as commented by Madhubabu Chinnam, it has become a symbol /show of wealth to organize multi-cuisine menus in functions where much of the food is wasted. trend needs to be stopped.It should be made mandatory that the function halls collect the remaining food and inform NGOs or organizations like Mother Theresa's Nirmala to collect the same for distribution to the needy.. more
