The Cost Of Throwing Away Food
Aug 26, 2015
Robert Lee started Rescuing Leftover Cuisine because he believes it is possible to solve both of these problems at once. His organization's mission is to "become the world’s most widely used solution for companies and individuals to eliminate food waste in their communities." Robert's organization has expanded across the country and his passion for eliminating food waste has spread like wildfire.
If you share Robert's passion then you can volunteer yourself at rescuingleftovercuisine.org. There you can sign up to participate at an event in your city or even start your very own brach.
No matter how you look at it, America has a serious problem with trash. In the past year, over 250 million tons of trash ended up thrown out in America alone and no item is tossed out more than excess food. Meanwhile, nearly 1 in 6 Americans live in hunger ever day according to the charitable organization Feeding America.
