Every three weeks, the US throws away the same amount of unused produce that is donated to food banks in 12 months. That's 11 months and 1 week of food that could go to charities, but ends up in landfill instead. Aiming to change this, Food Cowboy is a system that helps those in the food supply chain to find local nonprofits that can use the food they're throwing away.
