Reducing Food Waste and Feeding the Hungry

 

You have all of this wonderful food that’s just sitting out there and whole communities that don’t have access to it.

Reducing Food Waste and Feeding the Hungry

Setup

Almost 110 billion pounds of food, roughly 40% of the nation’s total food supply, go to waste in the United States every year, yet more than 38 million Americans lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious meals. Can we create a win-win-win that bridges the gap between waste and hunger while supporting struggling local restaurants that are often community mainstays? Rethink Food is proving that the answer is yes by connecting partners and community-based organizations to rescue food and move it to where it is most needed. The result: 2.4 million healthy meals prepared and distributed locally in 2020.
