The Pandemic is decimating the food supply chain and current donation-based approaches don’t address the structural problems caused by the crisis.
Simultaneously, demand from food pantries is increasing while many providers are throwing away huge amounts of excess perishable food.
Many food banks and pantries are designed for shelf stable donations and are not adequately equipped for perishables, which are currently going to waste due to the collapse of the food service supply chain.
FoodSourceUSA addresses the food imbalances for perishables such as meat, produce and dairy, serving society and protecting the supply chain.
The two missing ingredients are financial compensation for food producers, processors and distributors, and logistics for moving these perishable products into the food bank system in some way.
- We help connect food insecure communities to the sources of much needed fresh produce, meat and dairy products.
- We make it possible for government agencies to pay producers and processors for the product, keeping supply chains viable until the economy stabilizes.
