Although the world grows enough food to feed 14 billion people (twice the human population) one in seven people are lacking proper nutrition and calories. In addition, 33% of all food purchased ends up thrown away! World hunger is less an over population issue, and more of a food allocation issue. Shane Lory is a student at Colorado College and the director/founder of The Colorado Springs Food Rescue, which is a non profit organization that rescues edible food waste from restaurants, grocery stores, and cafeterias to give, for free, back the local community who are in need of food. After taking a gap year and traveling with a low budget around the world, Shane came face to face with poverty in America, and the magnitude of income inequality prevalent today. Shane is now a devout food justice and peace activist inspiring people to live sustainably, redefine food as a human right instead of a privilege, and purchase food responsibly.
