Every year 108 billion pounds of food go to waste while 1 in 10 people are food insecure,” said Justin Levy, executive director at Conscious Alliance. “That’s 130 billion meals in the trash that could be on plates, feeding people. “Applegate, Justin’s and Conscious Alliance have come together to change this. We believe no one should go hungry and no food should be wasted. So, we’re taking action to make a real difference for people across the nation.”
