Charity offers surplus food to homeless 英慈善机构利用多余食材为流浪者提供饭菜

Steepest street turns into tourist attraction “世界上最陡的街道”成为游览胜地

文字稿 

A large spread of ingredients destined for the trash. This was all rescued by volunteers in London. Because of food handling laws, there's no meat. Nevertheless, it's transformed into free healthy meals and served to many living in social isolation and poverty. FoodCycle is a charity with close to thirty hubs across the UK. The UN estimates that roughly a third of all food produced for humans goes uneaten.

这一桌桌数量庞大的食材终究难逃被扔进垃圾箱的命运。然而,伦敦的志愿者们将其全部回收利用了起来。由于食品操作法的相关条例,他们发放的食物中不包括肉类。尽管如此,志愿者们把这些原本会被浪费掉的食物做成了免费健康的饭菜,送到很多与社会隔离的人和贫困的人们手中。发起这次活动的是在全英拥有近三十家分站的慈善机构 FoodCycle “食物循环”。据联合国估算,约有三分之一为人类生产的食物会沦为剩饭。

This New Zealand street is officially the world’s steepest residential road. Baldwin Street in the city of Dunedin has an inclination of 35 degrees and has been attracting many visitors. It’s irresistible for daredevils on bikes. It’s also the stage for an annual charity event in which 30,000 chocolate balls are rolled down the road.  

新西兰的这条路被正式列为“世界上最陡的居民区街道”。位于新西兰达尼丁市的鲍德温街的路面倾斜度高达35度,一直以来吸引了许多游客来此一游。热爱自行车的勇莽人士们无法拒绝在这里骑行的挑战。鲍德温街还是一项年度慈善活动的场地,在活动中,人们会把近三万颗巧克力球顺着这条街滑下去。
