ReFED is a national nonprofit working to end food loss and waste across the food system by advancing data-driven solutions to the problem. ReFED leverages data and insights to highlight supply chain inefficiencies and economic opportunities; mobilizes and connects supporters to take targeted action; and catalyzes capital to spur innovation and scale high-impact initiatives. Starting with the 2016 Roadmap to Reduce U.S. Food Waste, ReFED has developed a trusted history of producing first-of-their-kind tools and resources, providing a full-supply-chain picture of U.S. food waste, cost-effective solutions to reduce it, and methods to track progress. In February 2021, ReFED launched its new Roadmap to 2030 and Insights Engine, an online data center designed to serve as the next generation of data, insights, and guidance on U.S. food waste reduction. Solving this problem will have a significant impact on mitigating climate change, optimizing use of water, land, and other resources, and providing meals for the over 50 million people in the United States who currently face food insecurity.
ReFED's vision is a sustainable, resilient, and inclusive food system that optimizes environmental resources, minimizes climate impacts, and makes the best use of the food we grow. ReFED's values include collaborative expertise, convening the food system and leveraging the expertise and capabilities of individuals to collectively advance solutions; diverse perspectives, enriched by an inclusive network of diverse and underrepresented voices that help contribute to the mission; credible data, from identified sources, grounded in accessible analyses, and serving as the foundation for impactful solutions; practical ambition, an entrepreneurial spirit and approach to problems and solutions with a strategic and economic mindset; and tangible outcomes, driven by purposeful action and observable results, judging progress through the achievement of milestones large and small.
