I’m excited to share that the first half of 2023 has been incredibly impactful! So far this year, we’ve already provided 4 million pounds of food to food banks and pantries across the country! Of those 4 million pounds, we’ve helped transport over 2 million pounds of fresh, nutritious food through our Fresh Food Recovery program, which is more fresh food than we transported in all of 2022! Our network has delivered thousands of pounds of cabbage, bananas, sweet potatoes, and much more while also forging relationships with companies to donate both perishable and non-perishable food to communities in need.
Move For Hunger is also proud to have recently launched a brand new initiative, Zero Waste Kitchen! Zero Waste Kitchen is a hub for content where we share all our top tips for living sustainably. On average, 35% of food in the United States goes unsold or uneaten. Of that, 43% of food waste – 27 million tons annually – occurs at home. Making small changes to your lifestyle is a simple yet effective way to live a more sustainable life. Less food waste overall means more food in the stomachs of the 34 million food-insecure Americans, as well as a healthier ecosystem. At Zero Waste Kitchen, you’ll find recipes, demos, and more to help you go zero waste. Let’s work together to keep food – and our planet – out of the trash.
Your past support has helped us feed more people and keep more food out of landfills. We hope you’ll help us make 2023 our MOST impactful year yet. Join us in hosting a food drive or fundraiser or consider making another donation – every $25 helps us deliver 63 meals to people who are facing hunger. We’re so grateful for your support!
