Feeding America estimates that the U.S. produces 70 billion pounds of food waste each year. Meanwhile, 15.4% of U.S. households still experience hunger or food insecurity. Our Food Rescue program partners with local grocery stores and restaurants to rescue safe, edible food that would otherwise be thrown away. This program not only helps us provide food to those who need it, but it also diverts millions of pounds of food away from landfills each year.
Thanks to generous donations from our retail and restaurant partners, we rescue over 31,000,000 pounds of food each year.
