Food rescue as a high impact solution to solving food insecurity
FARM TO FEED
Using food loss to improve accessibility of a healthy diet and combat climate change
This is how:
Eradicate food loss:
Buy surplus and imperfect vegetables from farmers that would otherwise be lost
In sub-Saharan Africa, 50% of fruit and vegetables are lost or wasted.
Improve access to nutrition:
Deliver vegetables to food insecure communities and organisations.
32% of Kenyans face food insecurity and poor nutrition. 26% of children are stunted.
Create a healthier planet:
Food loss and waste is responsible for 8% of greenhouse gases. All the valuable resources put into producing produce - such as land, water, inputs and capital - are also wasted. Preventing food from rotting, prevent methane being released, which is a greenhouse gas more potent than CO2.
The devastating paradox
Food loss and hunger
Leads to unacceptable high costs - direct and indirect - on individuals, families, nations, healthcare systems and economies.
We believe access to affordable healthy food is a basic human right, not a privilege
in other ways
We are always looking for enthusiastic people to help us expand our impact
