The theoretical perspective of this essay is based on the correlative between rights and duties and on Thomas W. Pogge’s theories of global institutional duties. The thesis is that there is a global duty not to contribute to an institutional order in which the right to food is violated. First, the analysis shows that this thesis is supported by international instrument and the rapport of the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to food. Secondly, the analysis illustrates how two important policies and treaties from the European Union contribute to the construction of a global institutional order that violate the right to food. And thirdly the essay comes to the conclusion that food waste is a part of this institutional order and contributes to a global collective violation of the right to food. This essay argues that everybody has a duty not to contribute to an international order that violate human rights; consequently, and in the view of the above, everybody has a duty not to waste food.
