The March 2016 National Geographic Magazine is devoted to solving  the issue of food waste and distribution as they affect world hunger. The issue called Ugly - But Good - Food is available on Amazon.


The main article How ‘Ugly’ Fruits and Vegetables Can Help Solve World Hunger features Tristram Stuart, author of the 2009 book Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal. The articlepoints that about a third of the planet’s food goes to waste, often because of its looks. That’s enough to feed two billion people. It encourages people to buy less than perfect ("ugly") fruits and vegetables to avoid this huge waste.


The article is part of the National Geographic's Future of Food Initiative, a 5-year project.
