Posted on November 16, 2021

The food waste recovery movement, organized by ReFED, has been hard at work to not just calculate the problem at hand, but to also find ways to reduce food waste. SeaShare is a member of the ReFED Insights Engine, an online data center designed to serve as the next generation of data, insights, and guidance on U.S. food waste.

SeaShare is excited to announce that we have received one of the very first ReFED COVID-19 Food Waste Solutions grants. This grant is being used to urgently send 750,000 seafood to food banks and feeding centers across the country. “COVID-19 has disrupted the regular flow of the food supply chain, making it difficult to get fresh, healthy food to the people who need it most and increasing the amount of food insecurity,” said Alexandria Coari, Capital and Innovation Director at ReFED, a national nonprofit working to advance solutions to reduce the amount of food waste. “The work of organizations like SeaShare is urgent, and we’re excited to get them the critical support they need from the ReFED COVID-19 Food Waste Solutions Fund.”
