Food is for people, not for landfills.
Did you know that 40% (about $165 billion worth!) of food is thrown out in the US every year? All of this uneaten food could feed 25 million Americans. (source)
Or that the production of uneaten food occupies almost 1.4 billion hectares of land, which is nearly 30% of the world’s agricultural land area? (source)
With 50.1 million Americans facing food insecurity, we must work
together to solve this problem. (source)
Here, at the University of San Francisco's chapter of Food Recovery Network, we fight food waste and food insecurity within the community by recovering uneaten food and donating it to those in need.
