Abstract [en]

This paper examines two contrasting ethical approaches to waste within the context of modern day western food poverty and attempts to examine the justifications that these ethical definitions of waste might lend to impoverished people in re-appropriating the wasted food for themselves. Towards the end of the paper there is also a brief discussion regarding the political implications that can be found in competing ethical definitions of waste.
