This paper briefly seeks to highlight the dichotomy between food waste and overall hunger indices in the developing world. Using a case study of Pakistan, where up to 40% of food goes to waste, particularly in public consumption, the paper stresses the need for more robust anti-poverty strategies that improve food recycling as a means of combating hunger, thereby mitigating the paradox of hunger in plenty.
