The food we throw away is still food. It takes a lot of land, water, fertilizer, and effort to get food from the farm to our tables — so it’s important for our food to stay in the food system.
There are ways to make the best use of food that’s uneaten — first feed people and then feed animals that produce food for people. Both options align with the EPA’s food recovery hierarchy and the hierarchy of destinations for achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3.
We’ll take the Food Grounds you send us, run a series of manufacturing steps, including inspection and screening, to ensure they can be safely turned into food for chickens.
Currently, we’re working through the necessary scientific and regulatory processes to establish a safe and nutritious chicken feed ingredient we can distribute commercially. We’ll share more on our progress later this year.!
