WHAT IS

ReFED

ReFED is a collaboration of restaurants/grocers, farmers, nonprofit, foundations, and government leaders committed to reducing food waste in the United States. ReFED seeks to unlock new philanthropic and investment capital, along with technology, business, and policy innovation, which is projected to catalyze tens of thousands of new jobs, recover billions of meals annually for the hungry, and reduce national water use and greenhouse gas emissions. ReFED was formed in early 2015 to create a Roadmap to Reduce U.S. Food Waste, the first ever national economic study and action plan driven by a multi-stakeholder group committed to tackling food waste at scale. The Roadmap is designed to fill the gap between awareness and action by creating transparency in the waste flows, costs, and opportunities of a more efficient food system achieved by preventing, recovering, and recycling food waste.” (Source: ReFED, A Roadmap to Reduce US Food Waste by 20%, Report 2016) 

               In 2016, ReFED released the following report, A Roadmap to Reduce US Food Waste by 20% to help guide US stakeholders to reach this goal.
