Americans waste $165 billion of food each year.
16% of people in St. Joseph County are food insecure.
All the world’s nearly one billion hungry people could be lifted out of malnourishment on less than 1/4 of the food that is wasted in the United States.
Food insecurity inhibits an adult’s ability to work and a child’s ability to learn.
The number of people who will die from hunger today. We’re changing that in Michiana.
