Feeding chickens can combat climate change…who knew? (We did.)
Every year, grocery stores discard 43 billion pounds of food a year, with almost all of that going into landfills. Food is wasted on a major scale, and the effects on the environment are bleak. There’s no reason Americans should be throwing away almost twice as much food as any other developed country. So at Do Good Foods, we created a solution.
We decided to take the surplus food from grocery stores, and turn it into nutrient-dense feed for chickens. Chickens eat the surplus, then we sell that chicken at the very same grocery stores. Just like that, we created a system that works for a circular economy, combating food waste.
