It is reported that 40% of food produced in the U.S. is wasted, including 1 billion food items annually from U.S. schools, while 50 million Americans are food insecure. If no families were food insecure, the careless destruction of nutritious food in our schools would be unwise for environmental reasons. However, with 50 million food insecure Americans, perhaps there is an even darker adjective than "unwise" to describe this careless practice.
Food Rescue empowers students to lead our country away from our culture of food waste by providing them a platform to tell the story of food waste reduction in their own school.
Our free K-12 Food Rescue Log Tool Link uses cutting edge facial recognition technology, converting donated food items into pounds, meals, and CO2e. The tool link produces instant digital graphics with an embedded photo you take or choose from your photo library with each submission in real time to share and inspire your peers! #FoodIsNotTrash
