    @MeeseeksAndDestroy I think they just want people to take only an amount of food they can handle so little to no food gets thrown out. I’ve seen plates almost completely full of perfectly good food being thrown away, almost like the person took a few bites then didn’t feel like finishing. Why pile up a plate, then? Maybe it’s this buffet mentality of “I’m gonna get my money’s worth out of this buffet.”

    I do get that, not piling up buffet food just because it's "all you can eat", but wasting food or not doesn't help starving countries. So I think the comparison they're drawing doesn't really make sense even though their request to not waste food does.

    Yep. I tried using this on my kids. I have some smart(*kitten*) kids.

    Me: don't waste your food. Please eat it.
    Them: No! I don't like it
    Me: There are starving children that would give anything to eat this right now
    Them: So send it to them!

    I used a version of that last week.

    Me: Finish your beer before we go. Don't waste it.
    Him: But it's getting warm.
    Me: There are sober people in China that would love to have a beer.
    Him: Glug . . .Glug . . .Glug
