Two Birds, One stone: the environment and global hunger

Re-purposing Food Waste

The Global FoodBanking Network (GFN) re-purposes food waste by acquiring food before it is discarded and then distributing it to food bank networks around the world. In 2012, the GFN re-purposed 920 millions pounds of food that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill and used it to feed people, thus combining humanitarian aid with reducing methane-producing waste.
