“40 percent of food in the United States today goes uneaten.”
“Reducing food losses by just 15 percent would be enough food to feed more than 25 million Americans every year”
National Resource Defense Council Report 2012
“In 2013, 49.1 million people lived in food-insecure households”
USDA: Household Food Security in the United States in 2013
While so many live in food-insecure households here in the US and elsewhere in the world, we see tragically (often out of false fears of litigation*) that 40% of the food created in the US is just tossed away.
That’s where foodRev comes in, partners with food-businesses who would like to instead donate their massive amounts of food items and pre-packaged meals and deliver to families in need.
We’re technology driven intiative, and our technical team is comprised of Data Scientists, ML experts, Server-Side Engineers, Mobile and Web developers who constantly innovating methods for removing obstacles for businesses to donate to the needy.
