Soundwaves Xmas 2016: Waste No Food

After a riotous introduction from The Last Man on Earth’s Will Forte and Kristen Schaal, Suzanne St. John-Crane interviews Kiran Sridhar, the teenager who started an inspiring nonprofit called Waste No Food.

MISSION STATEMENT: Waste No Food is a registered nonprofit that provides a web-based “marketplace” allowing excess food to be donated from the food service industry to qualified charities that work with the needy. One-third of all food is wasted, from farms, restaurants and grocery stores. Yet there has been no efficient way for groups that have excess food to donate to the millions of hungry Californians and Americans. Waste No Food is that medium. Donors who wish to donate their excess food can sign up and post excess food as it becomes available. Qualified charities in the vicinity of the donors who have been vetted by Waste No Food, can claim the food. The charities are responsible for transportation and food handling.”
