Why are people unable to feed their families nutritious food? Why does food insecurity exist? Why is a third of the food in the US being thrown out annually? These are the questions that keep us up at night. A mind blowing fact that got us into action is: "If international food waste were a country, it would be the third leading cause of green house gas emissions behind the US and China." Not only are people unable to eat, but the problem is so absurd that the planet is suffering.
We started Flashfood to end food waste and at the very least make a massive dent in this problem. We want to save perfectly edible food that is thrown out for superficial reasons like weirdly shaped produce, or surplus meat and give it a happy home for a great price.
