Hunger in America
Forty-two million Americans face hunger every single day. That’s 13.1 million children, 5.3 million senior citizens and 1 in 4 U.S. veterans affected by hunger.
Food Waste in America
About 40% of food grown, processed and transported in the U.S. each year goes to waste. That’s billions of pounds of food thrown away each year. According to The National Resource Defense Council, if we were able to rescue just 15% of the food we waste, we’d save enough to feed 25 million Americans each year. In a country where millions face hunger every single day, our food waste epidemic is a humanitarian crisis and environmental catastrophe.
