SAN FRANCISCO, September 5, 2019 /3BL Media/ — Today, ReFED, the only U.S. nonprofit wholly dedicated to reducing food waste, announced the cohort of ten organizations that will participate in its Nonprofit Food Recovery Accelerator.
We are thrilled to welcome Robert Lee, Co-Founder and CEO of Rescuing Leftover Cuisine for a special Thanksgiving week episode. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a national nonprofit that targets both the prevention of quality food waste and putting an end to hunger. In the United States alone, 40 percent of food gets tossed every year and on average, 1,160 pounds of food are lost to the garbage pail each year by an American family of four.
