More than 840 million people around the world go to bed hungry each night – including millions of children. At the same time, each year 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted so it never feeds a hungry person. At GFN, we are mindful of these realities each and every day – and we are driven to make a real change. Food banking rescues perfectly edible, nutritious food before it is wasted and redistributes it to feed hungry people. Last year, GFN network food banks delivered more than 920 million pounds of food to nourish hungry people – that’s food that did not go to waste.
