After a brutal winter, summer has finally arrived. While everyone is surely thrilled, America's children are probably the most excited of all. Summer means they can shed the confines of the classroom for days of popsicles, sun and freedom. For most kids, it's the best time of the year. But sadly, not for all.
Each year, more than 70 million pounds of food go to waste in our country. With this much surplus, no one should have to go hungry. To prevent waste and solve hunger, Feeding America is using new mobile technology to revolutionize how it and member food banks, such as Forgotten Harvest in Detroit, Mich., rescue food and make distribution processes quicker, more efficient, and scalable.
