Food For Thought
An estimated 100 billion pounds of food, enough to totally eliminate hunger, is thrown away annually in the United States. It does not have to be this way - and you can help.
Your support of the Campaign helps many more food pantries receive fresh produce - improving community health while also helping the environment. In the News
