Between 9.7 million acres of farmland and over 22 million residents, an estimated 40% of the food produced in Florida goes to waste. Excessive production at the industrial level, overbuying from consumers, lack of proper meal planning, and poor growing seasons for crops are some of the multiple factors that contribute to excessive food loss.

The organizations that partner with the Florida Food Recovery Coalition are committed to the vision and mission of wasting less and feeding Florida. Pulling from non-profit, government, academia, and private sectors, FFRC is dedicated to engaging in intersectional discussion and problem solving in an effort aid in feeding the 2,252,050 Floridians that are food insecure.
