There are lots of ways to raise awareness for a cause. Usually, the _1_ the idea is, the more it gets noticed. And that's precisely why one _2_ Frenchman has caught our attention.
Baptiste Dubanchet is biking across Europe, surviving _3_ on discarded (丢弃) food. The three-month, 1,900-mile journey from Paris to Warsaw is Dubanchet's
_4_ of raising awareness of food waste in Europe and throughout the world.
As you can _5_ , the trip is no piece of cake. While restaurants _6_ tons of food each year, much of it remains inaccessible because of _7_ garbage containers, health regulations, or business policies. Only about one in ten places _8_ him food that would otherwise be discarded. For legal _9_ most restaurants have a policy against _10_ food waste. "Some people have even _11_ their jobs by giving me food," Dubanchet said.
What's _12_ interesting is the attitude various cities have toward Dubanchet's cause. Berlin has been the _13_ while the most difficult was the Czech town of Pilsen. There, he had to _14_ at some 50 different stores or restaurants before finding food. The _15_ is all the more serious when you consider the _16_ exercise required to bike from France to Poland.
"I have to get food _17_ because after all the biking I am tired and I need the _18_ ," Dubanchet explained. "Is my _19_ full or empty? That is the most important thing, not waht I am eating."
He aims to _20_ his journey by mid-July. With any luck, he'll turn a few more heads in the process.
