You may have heard this terrifying yet true statistic: 40 percent of all food produced in this country goes uneaten. It’s no secret that food waste is a big issue. Months ago, we reported on FoodMaven’s innovative approach to tackling the squandered food problem. The Colorado Springs-based startup is a for-profit company that intercepts and sells oversupplied food on a digital wholesale platform to restaurants, hospitals, and institutional facilities (think assisted living centers). It’s a step in the right direction to fixing our inefficient and inherently wasteful food system.
