Each year, billions of pounds of surplus food are sent to landfills, while 42 million Americans (1 in 8 ) struggle with food insecurity. Of those, 13 million (1 in 6 ) are children.
If we were able to capture just a fraction of those pounds from local foodservice outlets (like restaurants, hotels, convenience stores, etc.), we could provide billions of additional meals to those in need!
And you can help!
Online Marketplace, the newest food rescue initiative from Feeding America, can enable you to overcome the common hurdles to lower-volume, highly perishable donations and help deliver them safely to those in need.
Online Marketplace leverages Feeding America’s vast network of food banks and agencies, as well as technology, to match local foodservice donors with food banks and agencies in local communities to prevent waste and help fight hunger!
