World Food Day

foodday - World Food Day

It is alarming to hear that for the first time in a decade the global hunger increased affecting 815 million people or 11 percent of the world population. The increase is largely attributed to increase in violent conflicts across the world and climate change. We somehow don’t realize how much food is going to waste every day, which impacts the environment and our community in so many ways. Just a little thought and planning will help save money, reduce our carbon footprint, and keep the valuable resources and energy used to produce and distribute food from going to waste!

We can each do our part to stop the global food crisis! GTCbio pledges to support our community by providing donated untouched food that would have otherwise gone to waste to those who might not have a steady food supply. Our donation will go to Foothill Unity Center, Inc., a local non-profit dedicated in providing food, temporary shelter, transportation, and a variety of health services for low-income and homeless people in Los Angeles County.

Where will your donation go?
