Coalition brings fresh food that would have been wasted to needy in the Easton area


It’s estimated that 30-40% of all food in the United States is wasted, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Much of that food can be eaten but is tossed, either because it’s not visually perfect or is taking space needed for fresher inventory. In the Lehigh Valley, 700,000 pounds of food per year fits that category, according to the Lehigh Valley Food Policy Council, a collaboration of organizations working to reduce food insecurity.
