Stephanie commented on Food Waste → Solving Hunger

Thank you, Isaac Jumba ! Great question. With a merging of companies, agencies, and resources, there could certainly be a solution. For example: unused refrigerated trucks could serve as back-up storage for fresh foods harvested + unemployed kitchen talent could prepare meals or serve as food distributors hired by government relief funds + relief funds going to offset the costs of farmers pivoting their business models.
There are many complex layers. For example: the amount of food there is to save, the lack of storage to hold the food in/keep it fresh, the reduced number volunteers with food banks and nonprofits making food preparation and disbursement more challenging than ever, the cost farmers would incur from pivoting their business model. I believe in solutions! It would take a multi-organization effort.
