Food is renewable and biodegradable. China has much more to worry about as at least one of its
citiz ...

As long as China is dependent on food imports - it is an issue that will keep the powers to be in Beijing up at night.  Especially when the 'ghosts of famines past' is airing on CCTV-NEWS (i.e. the Shanghai Orphans from the late 50's looking for their birth parents).

So bringing a sack lunch to formal government functions will solve all this?

No... but a good head slap to an offical that buys up a month's worth a food just to throw it out after the dog and pony show is over would be nice once in a while.

Look we both know that when it comes to China, like it or not, collective efforts by the CCP is needed as a sign of good faith to the Chinese people that they are not devolving into the 'hated Republicans/Imperials' of old.

According to China Central Television (CCTV), an estimated 200 billion yuan ($32 billion) worth of food -- enough to feed about 200 million people for one year -- goes to waste in China each year.

This figure is astonishingly high in a country where 128 million people live on less than $1 a day, and those worried about face should turn their concerns to those with empty stomaches.

What to do ?????????????????''

No, what is said in this fishbowl is only for a few to observe and ponder.  However, if actions like this by the CCP go unchecked continuously as part of a larger whole of issues, it will be the Chinese people that will have the last say, much like their grandparents and great grandparents did with the Republicans and Imperials.
