The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, working to connect people with food and end hunger.
In America, we have enough food to feed every man, woman and child, yet 72 billion pounds of safe, edible food goes to waste each year. In fact, an estimated 25 – 40 percent of food grown, processed and transported in the U.S. will never be consumed. And more food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in municipal solid waste.
We work with manufacturers, distributors, retailers, food service companies and farmers to gather food before it goes to waste.
