Urban Gleaners: Reducing Food Waste to Reduce Hunger

“A simple idea that came out of hearing a story on the radio. For Tracy Oseran, it was something she had to do: help find and distribute food that would otherwise be thrown out — perfectly edible food—from supermarkets, farmer’s markets, events, and restaurants, and deliver that food to agencies and schools that work directly with those facing food insecurity and hunger concerns. Last year her company, Urban Gleaners rescued over 500,000 pounds of food from being thrown into landfills, and instead given to people in need. Join us as we visit her organization in action.”
