Food Waste in The United States

January 29, 2014

City Havrest in an organization Farmer Amanda worked for as she began her farming career five years ago. It is a cause very dear to our hearts and we would like to spread the word!

We discard 40% of food fit for consumption every year in our country alone. City Harvest is a wonderful non-profit organization in New York that rescues excess produce and food that would otherwise be wasted, and distributes that food to the hungry population of New York. 90% of these individuals are working, hungry people; which means they have jobs that make them enough money to be ineligible for government aid, but not enough money to make the choice between costs like food, clothing and healthcare for their families. For more information on these statistics please visit:
