Move the World.

Hunger effects nearly 15 million people in the United States, yet we rank number one in the world when it comes to food waste. A non-profit called Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is on a mission to take what would become food waste and use it to feed the hungry. Through their web app, restaurants, hotels, and catering companies can offer excess food for volunteers to pick up and bring to homeless shelters. So far, Rescuing Leftover Cusine has saved over 1.7 million pounds of food and has helped serve 1.5 million meals.
