Waste Not Want Not
DID YOU KNOW… One quarter of the food produced in America every year is thrown away before it reaches a consumer? As a nation we annually discard 27 MILLION TONS of food, while more than 38 million Americans go hungry. Waste Not, Want Not is a volunteer-based food rescue mission looking to change that! Serving North Florida since 1990, they connect stores, businesses, restaurants, and farmers to charities feeding those in need. Last year, Waste Not, Want Not provided an average of 4,200 meals a day to those in need. Just $10, the cost of the average lunch, can provide breakfast for 100 children.
