Description

Via our NEST Nurtures zero hunger program, we tackle global hunger, poverty, and food waste through feeding the hungry initiatives, food rescues, and hunger-based service projects. Our main goal is to increase awareness and action around food waste reduction by maximizing opportunities to connect surplus food to people in need. By organizing zero hunger service opportunities, hosting sustainability workshops, and advocating for zero waste through awareness campaigns, we engage the public to drive collaborative civic action.
