Reports Illustrate Magnitude Of Food Waste Problem In U.S.

November 25, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Two new reports make the case that an “outrageous amount of food is wasted in our cities,” and could instead be redirected to feed the hungry. Data from the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Rockefeller Foundation show that 68 million more meals annually could potentially be donated to people in need across New York City, Denver, and Nashville. The reports provide detail on how much food is wasted in the home, how cities could increase food donations to the poor, and how food waste problems could be tackled at a city level nationwide. The NRDC also published case studies of innovations by government agencies, nonprofits and private companies that seek to address hunger, reduce waste, and create jobs.
