About Us

EndFoodWaste.org is the website created and managed by volunteer Feeding the 5000 Oakland Event Coordinator and Zero Food Waste Forum Co-Chair Jordan Figueiredo.In the United States, 40% of our food is wasted while 1 in 6 people are food insecure and 14% of our human-made emissions come from the food we waste. It is through the intersection of those issues, as the environmental and social challenges of our time, that sparked the website motto “To End Food Waste, Hunger, and Climate Change. All at the Same Time.” Bringing these 3 issues together provides greater awareness and inspiration as they are very well connected in problem and in solutions such as food waste prevention and food recovery, among other things.
