Update: Great blog profiling early participant Amanda Cather from Plow and Stars Farm (recruited by MCA!)
From the website:
Every year in Montgomery County, Maryland…
- 246,000 tons (23%) of the County’s solid waste is food waste. (Montgomery County Waste Composition Study, July 26, 2013)
- 79,000-81,000 (8%) of Montgomery County residents do not know where their next meal will come from. (Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap study)
- 35% of children in Montgomery County public schools qualify for free or reduced meals. (Montgomery County Public Schools)
MCA is doing our part by linking farms, Reserve food business and service for those in need to the program. Spread the word... because we need to stop the waste and rescue food.
