The Makings of a Zero-Waste Thanksgiving

Every year in America, we throw out more than 400 pounds of food per person. In the season of giving thanks and giving back, Hungry Harvest is bringing the mission to end this food waste to your Thanksgiving table. Starting next week, we'll be offering all the staples for your holiday feast (except the turkey) in our rescued produce add-on marketplace. In anticipation of our Thanksgiving marketplace, we asked some of our Hungry Harvest Heroes to share their tips for making a holiday full of meaning, and low on waste.

Hunger Doesn’t Take a Summer Vacation

In this country, 27.6 million children go without the free or reduced-price meals they need during the summer.
