Faith Fights Food Waste

A global opportunity for the faith community to learn about and address the waste of food

The big question

What does your faith say about wasted food?

Everyone can learn more about what their faith says about wasted food. That’s why we provide free resources for faith leaders and individuals. All it takes is a few simple steps to reduce food waste. Which leads to a healthier planet, and fewer people worrying about putting food on the table.

“Faith Fights Food Waste addresses the complex, global issue of food waste and overconsumption, with tangible, local, and ‘spiritually cultivating’ practices that any faith community can undertake.”  

Rev. Jacob Bolton of New York

“I think this is a fantastic opportunity for people of all faiths to actualize the biblical injunction to share the gleanings of our fields with those in need. Donating our food surplus, rather than throwing it away, reinforces the conservationist ethic that is a part of all religious traditions. I hope houses of worship of all faiths will participate.”

Rabbi Joshua Ratner from Connecticut

40 percent of all food in America is never consumed
