Just read an really interesting article on the rising price of food all over the world.
According to Oxfam food prices wordwide are up on average 36% from this same time last year. Think about that! What would you do if the cost of anything you rely on daily had increase by a third?
And that’s just an average. Since it hasn’t happened here (yet) the places were it is happening are seeing an even more pronounced increase.
What’s the cause? Climate change largely, but also increase in transportation costs, like the rising price of oil. Read the artcile, I’ll have more to say later. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-13597657
