Walmart SPECIAL SERIES
Roughly a third of all food produced globally goes to waste, according to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. In the U.S., this figure is closer to 40 percent. Meanwhile, an estimated 821 million people around the world are food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from. In this series sponsored by Walmart, we'll explore how leading companies and nonprofits are making the connection between food waste and hunger—and re-routing safe and healthy food to where it truly belongs: on the tables of hungry people.
