According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, we need $30 billion a year to eradicate global hunger. It’s quite the sum but pale in comparison to the $165 billion worth of edible food thrown away each year in the United States. Food banks offer the ability to buy in bulk and can create widespread impact from your loose change.
On average, $1 donated to food banks can provide five pounds of food.
The average American dines out 5x per week. The spare change from all these meals can have a huge impact.
