Enough Food for Everyone

The world's population is projected to increase to 9 billion within the next few decades. The human race must decide whether we will continue marching down the path we are currently following; this path involves transforming more pristine nature into farmland, increasing greenhouse gas emissions, and producing more and more food. But there is another path. Instead we can begin reducing food waste. Almost half of all food in the United States is wasted. This can change. Gleanr will allow us to feed more people while consuming fewer resources.

Our Mission

The world grows enough food to feed all of its inhabitants even as our population increases. The problem of food security is not about producing food, but preventing food waste. Gleanr is a technology that uses crowd-sourcing to empower individuals to reduce food waste by consuming discarded but otherwise edible food.
