Help Us Drive Solutions Adoption

ReFED estimates that an annual investment of $14B over the next ten years can divert 45 million tons of food from being wasted each year. That investment would result in $73B in annual net financial benefit – a five-to-one return. Plus every year, it would lead to an increase in meals recovered, resources conserved, business profits, jobs created, and more. Food waste is a systemwide problem, and it requires a systemwide response. Learn how you can get involved.
