Take the Pledge Today to stop Food Waste!…
Every year, the United States is wasting approximately 40% of the food we produce. Meanwhile 42 million Americans are “food insecure”—lacking reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. This just isn’t right! If our country recovered just 30% of what we’re wasting and provide it to people in need, domestic hunger would be eliminated!
If feeding those in need isn’t enough of a reason to keep this food from ending up in the landfill, there’s a lot more at stake—money, water, fertilizer, crop land… the list goes on! Here are a few annual stats to put this country’s rampant waste in perspective: $218 billion or 1.3% GDP, 52 million tons landfill (21% of the landfill waste stream), 21% of fresh water usage (11 trillion gallons), 19% of fertilizer usage, 18% of all crop land and over 20% of Greenhouse Gas emissions
It is time for us to come together to solve this crisis.
