Abstract

The world today is plagued by homelessness and poverty. These people suffer from malnutrition. One specific group of people that are heavily affected by this is teenagers. Many teenagers across the world are unable to access healthy and nutritious foods. However, a huge amount of food is wasted every day by wealthy families. Riches to Resources is a project designed to fight against hunger and the waste of valuable food. This company provides free class sessions that teach teenagers, specifically with wealthy backgrounds, the importance of growing food and how to do it. This will decrease the wasted amount of food, as it will teach wealthy families the importance and value of food (since growing food is difficult and time-consuming). In addition, low-cost kits are sold that contain essential items for growing food. Many different types of kits are sold that correlate with different climates and other factors (such as living conditions). These kits are targeted towards both poor and wealthy families. For wealthy families, it is an opportunity to discover the difficulties of growing food. On the contrary, for poor teenagers, it will allow them to self-sustain and eat healthier foods while spending less money. Our product connects with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals because it encourages education on reusing and saving resources, leading to less wastage and no hunger. Through our product, two detrimental problems to society can be solved: wasted food from wealthy teenagers will decrease while poor teenagers are able to consume healthy foods that they were not able to obtain previously.
