Did you know that about 40% of all food is wasted? And that this accounts for 8% of all greenhouse gas emissions?
Don’t worry, few people realized this until Project Drawdown identified reducing food waste as the third most impactful thing we can do to reverse global warming.
And did you know that Indiana is leading the world on this issue?
Until K-12 Food Rescue, most students threw away perfectly good food — unopened cartons of milk or untouched bananas, oranges, apples.
Now, students at over 900 schools nationwide set those items aside for local food pantries, and children with special needs manage the entire process.
