What Kids Can Teach Us About Sharing:

We are facing an insane food imbalance. 870 million people in the world do not have enough to eat, yet an estimated 30-50% of the food produced globally goes to waste. While the logistical, bureaucratic and legal systems we exist within make remedying this more complicated than it needs to be, the solution is simple and appears to be something that children come by naturally: sharing.
The following informal experiment conducted in Spain by Action Against Hunger found that, when faced with food injustice, all 20 of the children observed chose to share food. While a sample size of 20 is too small to be conclusive about the tendencies of all children, the experiment highlights our natural understanding of the power and ease of sharing. We grownups can learn a lot from this.
