for Food is Respect for Life”
The students of Grade
V-D conducted the morning assembly on 10th October on the topic
‘Save Food Save Life’ on the occasion of World Food Day. The assembly
commencedwith Lord’s Prayer followed by thought of the day in English as well
as in Hindi.
The grim situation of food wastage was presented in the form of a
mimewhich left the audience awestruck. The students presented a family which
was starving for food, mother searching for food for her kids in the garbage
bags. The youngsters tried to give the message of saving food and giving it
away instead of throwing in the garbage bins. The poems
presented by the students emphasised on the fact that one should not waste food

The informative speeches by the young orators aimed at
sharing food with less fortunate people, instead of wasting it. They urged
everyone to value food as wasted food means wasted money, effort and planetary
resources. This also is a huge contributor to environmental pollution.
The choir showcased a splendid
performance singing the glory of the food. Food: Waste Not, Want Not, is the
demand of the day and it is a social and national responsibility of every
individual, because the world’s population is expected to double by the year
2050, making food security a major challenge. Food production will have to be

due to socio economic pressure. Hence it is the high time to start practicing
not to waste food.
The wonderful assembly which was
appreciated by all concluded with the message
“Whenever you leave some food in your
