The Beta Nu chapter of Delta Gamma is raising money for 412 Food Rescue. Last year, Delta Gamma raised over $20,000 for Camp Kesem and we're excited to work towards a similar goal this year!
412 Food Rescue's mission is to prevent perfectly good food from entering the waste stream. We waste up to 40% of our food globally —translating to over 1.3 billion tons annually. Food waste has implications on both hunger, and the environment. In the U.S., 1 in 7 are hungry. If we recovered all the food that is lost or wasted, we'd have enough to feed all the hungry, 4 times over. Food production also uses 10% of the energy budget, 50% of the land and 80% of all fresh water consumed in the U.S.
End hunger, end food waste. See https://412foodrescue.org/about-us/ for more.
