Question for written answer E-004187-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Edward Czesak (ECR)

 Subject:  The donation of unsold consumable food to charities
 Answer in writing 

One in four Europeans — approximately 125 million people — is at risk of food poverty. The ever growing influx of migrants from outside the EU is making the situation worse. Some 100 million tonnes of food are wasted every year in the EU.

1. Will the Commission work with the food sector to develop a programme encouraging markets to donate unsold food to charitable organisations?

2. Will the Commission present an action plan to prevent food waste?
