Are food courts the answer?A few months ago, I attended a wedding where during dinner, everyone was seen carrying a plate and having just something about anything he or she liked. I did notice that there was far less wastage, as the guests had to request those serving to give them the extra bit. Yes, there was no hesitation but the wastage was reduced. The very old and those who could not move around for whatever reason, were given the option of dining in the one or two tables provided.
Is this the best way to minimize the criminal wastage of food? If served on the table on the banana leaf, at least in South India, one does notice huge wastage, This is a crime. If we can minimize the wastage, at least some portion of it can reach the poor.
Is it time for us to change track and go for food courts in all weddings?
