According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), around one-third of all food produced globally is lost (in the production phase) or wasted (in the retail and consumption phase). A report issued in 2018 by Boston Consulting Group alarmingly noted that the annual rate of food loss/waste is set to rise by a third by the year 2030, when 2.1 billion tonnes will either be lost or thrown away. This corresponds to at least 66 tonnes of edible food, wasted per second.

Este es el caso del equipo de asesores y asesoras encargados de la formación de los docentes de los centros enclavados en las comarcas alicantinas del sur valenciano, que han iniciado un proceso de reflexión y formación en colaboración con los equipos docentes de dichos centros.
