Food insecurity affects every zip code. Currently 42 million people, including children, who are working multiple jobs face such economic hardship that they cannot consistently buy the food they need for themselves and their families. But, Food Recovery Network has a solution that can eradicate hunger in the US that is cost effective, scalable and helps all of our communities thrive.

the US fighting food waste and hunger in the US. Learn about FRN’s unique contribution to tackle would-be food waste with their scalable food recovery model, as well as their unique contribution to support the economic security of the 42 million people in the US who are currently food insecure.
