From Waste To Plate: Our Organization’s Innovative Solution to Food Waste and Food Insecurity

Food waste and food insecurity are pressing global challenges that often seem contradictory. With staggering amounts of food wasted daily and millions of people struggling to access nutritious meals, there is an urgent need for innovative solutions. In this blog post, we’ll explore some astonishing statistics about food waste and food insecurity and discuss our organization’s pioneering approach to addressing these issues.

Shocking Statistics on Food Waste:

  1. Globally, approximately one-third of all food produced for human consumption is wasted, amounting to billions of pounds of food each year (FAO).
  2. In the United States alone, it is estimated that 30-40% of the food supply goes to waste (USDA).
  3. The cost of food waste to the global economy is nearly $1 trillion (World Bank).
  4. If food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, surpassed only by China and the United States (FAO).

Disturbing Facts About Food Insecurity:

  1. A significant percentage of the global population is undernourished, representing millions of people worldwide (FAO).
  2. In the United States, millions of people, including millions of children, experience food insecurity (Feeding America).
  3. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated food insecurity, with millions more people estimated to have faced acute food insecurity (World Food Programme).

Our Organization’s Innovative Solution:

Our non-profit organization has developed a unique approach to tackle both food waste and food insecurity:

  1. Rescuing excess food: We partner with restaurants, retailers, and other organizations to collect excess food that would otherwise be wasted.
  2. Freeze-drying technology: We use state-of-the-art freeze-drying technology to extend the shelf life of the rescued food, ensuring that it remains safe and nutritious for consumption.
  3. Redistribution: We distribute freeze-dried food to food banks, shelters, and individuals facing food insecurity, providing them with nutritious meals and helping to alleviate hunger.
  4. Environmental impact: Our efforts not only address food waste and food insecurity but also contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by diverting food waste from landfills, where it would decompose and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas.


From waste to the plate, our organization’s innovative solution is playing a crucial role in addressing the challenges of food waste and food insecurity. By rescuing excess food, utilizing freeze-drying technology, and redistributing it to those in need, we’re working towards creating a more sustainable and equitable food system that ensures access to nutritious food for all. We believe that the journey from waste to plate can be a transformative one, and with continued support and collaboration, we can make a significant impact on the lives of those we serve and the planet we share.
