A scalable solution to hunger in our community
- One out of every six people in the United States is food insecure.
- 40% of all food produced in the United States is wasted.
- Urban Harvester is a simple solution that connects surplus food to hungry people.
- Urban Harvester is a scalable solution in reducing hunger and waste.
In the last 12 months, Urban Harvester's food recovery Pilot Program in Los Angeles County has connected 30,000 meals to local non profit community agencies. Urban Harvester's vision is to connect untapped food sources to Non Profit Agencies feeding folks in need within local communities.
(recoverable food has not expired, the stamped dates sell and use by are still current. This is fresh food which is moved to make room for newer items)
Our Pilot Program tracked over 20 tons of food diverted from the waste stream and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Fresh healthy food should not be wasted it should instead become food opportunities.
We welcome your support and participation in joining our vision and committment.
For the food donors our program assists with your implementation of the food donation step. We are able to design a customized procedure that does not interrupt workflow and supply chain process or food safety. And our findings have shown repeatedly there is a boost in employee morale as they are part of making a difference since 2009.
