we contribute three percent of our gross sales to a charitable
organization. Our hope is to increase awareness about these
organizations and the good work they do in our community while
providing them financial support. We offer our customers a
chance to contribute through their purchases -- giving
back to the community while getting something they love. We
support a different organization each season.
Recipient: Produce from the Heart
from the Heart collects donated edible produce from farmers and
gardeners across Nebraska and redistribute it to pantries,
homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and distribution sites. Their
goal is to stop the waste of fresh produce and end hunger in
One in five kids in Nebraska may go to bed hungry.
13 million children in America experience hunger (meaning
that they frequently skip meals, eat too little, and
sometimes go without food for a whole day).
Americans throw away 100 billion pounds of food each year.
Less than 3% of this waste is recovered.
40% of food in the United States goes uneaten.
Food waste accounts for more than one quarter of the total
freshwater consumption in the United States. The nation is
facing tremendous drought, yet throwing out one pound of
chicken wastes more than 450 gallons of water.
It's estimated that 10% of all greenhouse gas emissions in
the United States comes from producing, transporting,
storing, and preparing food that is never eaten.
