Let Them Eat Cake! Is the short hand to explain the daze and confusion most people have about hunger and the growing state of poverty not just locally, but also on a global scale. Many believe that there is a lack of food to feed the world, though we throw away 40% of all food every day(resource: Feeding America), which is enough food to feed everyone a few times over. There are many reasons for this phenomenon, yet the two main agreed upon cause’s by the UN and Global research bodies of this happening are; First and for most the lines in which we use to distribute large amounts of food both in developed and developing countries, Second, being War and conflict.
The Purpose of LEC! is to help end this cycle through delivering food directly to where it is currently needed most, in order to do what we can in order to at least ease as much of the problem as we can.
