1 in 6 Americans are currently struggling with food insecurity as well as hunger. Each day, thousands and thousands pounds of edible food is thrown away. While some of that food may be composted, most of it sent to a landwill or incinerator, degrading our environment.
With the number of hungry people in America, as well as the amount of edible food being wasted, how can we help reduce both of those numbers?
This project helps recover edible food that would have otherwise gone to waste. By recovering these foods and delivering them to the local souup kitchens and shleters we are helping to bring food to those in need while diverting material from the waste stream. As most of the food is already prepared, this also reduces limited volunteer/staff time needed to prepare food in the soup kitchens and shelters. This project benefits the local community as well as dining/restaurant facilities, and looking to expand its services as far out as possible.
