Dear boldcaught. With the New Year just around the corner and resolutions being drafted, and ready to be put into action, I too, want to approach this coming year with a significant, and close to the heart, resolve. My resolution for 2011 will be a conscious effort to not waste food. This effort will be made not only by myself, but by our employees in our restaurants and retail shops. I will also take the opportunity to share this message in the media, and my teachings throughout the year. The world produces 120% of the food it needs, and yet there are people still hungry. We are all concerned about being "green," but according to some of the latest statistics that I read, one third of the world's gas omissions are produced by wasted food. The actual waste of the food, coupled with all the energy, labor and materials used in producing this food, are all contributing to this serious problem. The solution seems rather simple, and all of us have it in our power to make a difference! So let's start a movement as a nation, and rekindle an old saying "Waste Not Want Not", which has much relevance today, and for our future. Commit with me in this movement by joining my Community Table. Share in the discussion of how you will make a commitment to not waste food in the coming year- what you will do to help! You can also write to me about how you will become a part of this mission at commitwithlidia@lidiasitaly.com Spread the word far and wide amongst friends and family- we all have the power to make a difference by not wasting food. It starts with us, in our own homes, and at our own tables. I wish you all a very healthy and Happy New Year! Warmly, Lidia
