THERE ISN'T A LACK OF FOOD
BUT A LACK OF DISTRIBUTION
World-wide, roughly 33% of food gets wasted, which is around 1.3 billion tons each year. This amount of food could feed 2 billion people for an entire year.
In San Diego 486,000 people do not have stable and consistent access to food. This means that 1 in 7 San Diegans are likely going hungry every day while perfectly good food is contributing to climate change.
When food is thrown away, it is sent to a landfill where it decomposes and produces harmful greenhouses gases.
