Giving City: Nonprofit hits milestone in food recovery

Every year, billions of pounds of food is wasted across the country, but Austin’s Keep Austin Fed is one of dozens of food recovery groups working to stem the tide.

What started as a grassroots organization in 2004 has grown to a network of food contributors, volunteers and nonprofit recipients working together to keep food out of landfills and into the hands of the hungry. Last week, Keep Austin Fed hit a milestone of 3 million pounds of recovered food.
