The Changing Mix

reports that 3 – 6 billion
pounds of produce goes
wasted each year.
• The Foodbank’s average
cost per pound for
donated produce is
$.17, compared to a cost
of $.60 to acquire nonperishable items.
Fresh is the Future

50 million pounds of food.
• Over half of the food distributed is now fresh –
including fruits, vegetables, meat and dairy.

million pounds of fresh produce.

grow food, sort
food & get it to
