Americans waste a lot of food, and Part Select has created an infographic entitled “Keepin’ it Fresh”, detailing how food waste is impacting our environment, and how you can do your part to reduce the amount of food you throw out. For example, 40 percent of our food goes uneaten, costing $165 billion per year. If we were able to reduce losses by just 15%, we would save enough to feed 25 million Americans.
Supporting hunger relief programs are a top priority for Bank of America. They have been working to end hunger since 2008 with donations and volunteering. This infographic shows how Bank of America is helping to fight hunger in the US through volunteering, providing grants and raising awareness.
Members of Congress are working to reauthorize the Farm Bill, legislation that provides funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program, formerly known as food stamps, and for the SNAP education program. If Congress cuts funding for this program, it will affect millions of children and families, leaving them even more vulnerable to hunger.
