Help Put An End to Food Waste

Each year, we waste a staggering 35% of the food we produce. That “waste” is damaging our environment and exacerbating inequities, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Together, we can redesign a food system that is sustainable, resilient, and inclusive.

ReFED relies on donor support to power its programs - reducing food waste at scale. The impact of your donation will be felt across the entire food system. It will be reflected in the data we collect, the tools we create, and the action our partners take.

ReFED Directs Philanthropic Funding for Maximum Impact Through the Catalytic Grant Fund

Beginning in 2022, ReFED established the Catalytic Grant Fund, a fund with a goal of raising $20M to provide direct nonrecoverable and recoverable grants to organizations on the front lines of the fight against food loss and waste. Based on our experience with a highly successful COVID-19 Relief Fund and the wealth of data and insights that we hold on the problem of waste in the food system, we have created this opportunity to help philanthropists who want to support system change, but don’t have the bandwidth to research individual funding opportunities. The Catalytic Grant Fund takes the guesswork out of the process, assuring that donor’s dollars are used where they will have the greatest impact – reducing food loss and waste, addressing climate change positively, supporting biodiversity, getting food to families that need it, and helping businesses secure better bottom lines.

For more information on giving to the Catalytic Grant Fund, please email caroline.vance@refed.org or click the link below.
