Food Rescuers Turn Leftovers Into Lunch For The Hungry
Think about all the food left over at restaurants that isn't being used. Does it get thrown out? There are tons of hungry people who would appreciate it! This is exactly was Robert Lee believes and why he started his own foundation!
The son of Korean immigrants, Robert was taught never to waste food. He started a nonprofit based in NYC, Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, which collects fresh food that would otherwise be thrown out and gives it to people in need.
The 'Food Rescuers' have saved over 100,000 pounds of food so far and they plan to expand to other cities. Since 40% of all food goes to waste in America, Robert and his fellow rescuers are on a mission to turn it into meals for the hungry.
Many restaurants and organizations, such as Starbucks and Panera, are working with the nonprofit to ensure less families go hungry!
