Leanpath is celebrating Earth Day by living out one of our core philosophies: food connects everything. Our Portland, Oregon, team joined forces with the hard working crew at Heart 2 Heart Farms and Good Neighbor Family Pantry for a morning of service to the land and community.
Working in thousands of kitchens in over 30 countries, with foodservice clients large and small, Leanpath is now preventing food waste globally at a rate of 1 pound every 2 seconds, or 1 kilo every 4 seconds.
In the United States, 30 to 40 percent of all available food is wasted. Food is the nation’s single largest type of waste. Three U.S. federal agencies have announced a coordinated strategy to address the crisis.
Words matter, and just as it’s important to distinguish between terms such as food loss, food waste, and excess food, it’s also important to distinguish between “recovery” and “prevention” -- because the initiatives and impacts are very different.
There are so many moving parts in hospital foodservice that chefs and managers rarely have time to identify the root causes of food waste, let alone strategize to improve their operations. That's why Palomar Health trusts Leanpath technology to measure their food waste, analyze food waste data, and provide reporting and expert coaching to guide their prevention efforts.
