There is a fundamental absurdity in our nation's food system. While so many Americans struggle with hunger today, 40% of the food produced in the U.S. is thrown away. Our Zero Hunger | Zero Waste mission to make fresh, healthy food available for everyone in our communities has never been more important. See what we're doing to help create communities free of hunger and waste.
