Rethink Food NYC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working to recover nutritious excess food from New York City restaurants in order to provide low or no-cost meals to local homeless and families in need.
According to Feeding America, there are 42 million people facing hunger in the United States, with 1.4 million being in New York City alone. Astonishingly, research shows about 40% of the food produced in America today goes to waste; this is equivalent to 70 billion tons. Our goal is make sure the wholesome excess food gets to hungry mouths.
