Food Injection and Food Rescue

Articles, lectures, studies, tips and links on food throwing and food rescue.

30-50% of the food produced in the world ends up in the trash before it reaches the plate.

In a world where a billion people are hungry and natural resources are dwindling, global waste raises questions. In Israel, 33% of food is thrown away.

Here are links to information on the subject as well as tips for reducing this waste.
