Feed People Not Landfills
FoodCycle LA partnered with GOOGLE to destigmatize food insecurity.
Why It Matters?
The Impacts of Food Waste Are Catastrophic
An estimated 40% of food in the US is thrown into landfills.
Food thrown into landfills releases methane gas and contributes to climate change.
1 in 6 Americans is food insecure — children and the elderly are most at risk.
There is absolutely no reason that edible food should be wasted while people are going hungry.
That shows us that the problem of hunger is not due to scarcity – it is a failure of the imagination, and we can do better.
THE FUTURE OF THIS PLANET IS IN OUR HANDS.
WE’RE WORKING TO CREATE A BETTER SYSTEM!
FOODCYCLE IS FOCUSED ON CREATING NEW SOLUTIONS TO OLD PROBLEMS.
Food Recovery Program
We’re working with donors throughout Los Angeles to connect food with over 500 nonprofits that are feeding people.
We collaborated with the team from Food Oasis to create an up to date resource to help hungry people find food in
FoodCycle introduced innovative technology to send excess food where it is most urgently needed and to incorporate volunteers to help pick up more food.
Towards Zero Waste
Food Waste Prevention Program reduces food waste by using technology to prevent waste and save money.
We created events that use recovered food to create connection between people experiencing homelessness and community members.
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

ENSURE THAT EDIBLE FOOD STAYS OUT OF LANDFILLS
AND THAT NO CHILD GOES HUNGRY.
