GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food Waste Case Study: Food Bank of Siouxland

Title:
Food Waste Case Study: Food Bank of Siouxland

Abstract:
Situated on the western edge of Iowa, the Food Bank of Siouxland is able to serve 11 counties in two states -- Iowa and Nebraska. More than 100 agencies, such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency relief centers, shelters, and daycares, get their food from the food bank. This organization definitely plays a role in reducing the amount of food making it to Iowa landfills. Rather than throwing out day-old bread or canned food just at the expiration date, the Food Bank of Siouxland can take this food and distribute it to feed families in need of nutritious food.
