When first approaching this problem, my mind immediately jumped to various possible solutions that I have seen employed or thought of. But I quickly realized that my thoughts were centered around my personal experiences and that there was an entire food pathway in which wastage can occur as well. Moreover, my individual level experiences are vastly different than those living around the world. Food wastage is a multi-dimensional problem whose causes vary across settings. In order to develop a comprehensive picture of possible points of intervention, I drew out a food pathway, listing questions we need answered  along the way. The list seems never ending! If I missed anything critical, please let me know!

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

Look at the bigger picture!

my sons wife is 35 years old and I was diagnosed with poor ovarian reserve and very bad prognosis of having a baby with my own eggs. I was even given the option to consider donor eggs. That was around july 2014. I was absolutely devastated with the news and I arranged an IVF for November 2014 and it failed also, given that I had nothing to lose, I contacted on facebook (Oduduwa Ajakaye) and he send me his herbal product,. Believe it or not… I am already pregnant!
