40% of the food produced in the US is wasted every year, while 1 in 7 Americans face food insecurity, a number that is only growing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 54% Americans may experience food insecurity this year. Replate leverages technology and partners with community organizations to reliably and efficiently redistribute surplus food, lessening the impact food waste has on the climate, and providing meals for those who need them.

Millions of acres of agricultural land is used to produce food that ends up in the landfill or rots in the fields. Reduced food waste is the 3rd most impactful way to reduce emissions by 2050 according to Project Drawdown. Replate is helping to alleviate food waste while addressing food insecurity for people around the country. When you think about it, this organization is helping to solve two of the biggest problems facing humanity. That's pretty f'ing cool. - Pete
