I can’t believe the day is finally here that I get to introduce you to Halfsies, the project I’ve been working on nearly full-time for the last 4 months (and part-time for about 2 years).
Halfsies addresses 3 major problems that co-exist in our world today:
1) Oversized Food Portions. “Most restaurant serving sizes are 2 to 4 times the government’s recommended serving sizes.” –usatoday.com
2) Excessive Food Waste. “About 40 percent of the food produced in the United States isn’t consumed. Every day Americans waste enough food to fill the Rose Bowl. And our national food waste habit is on the upswing: We waste 50% more food today than we did in 1974.” –Jonathan Bloom, author of American Wasteland
3) Local & Global Hunger. “In 2009, 50.2 million Americans lived in food insecure households, 33 million adults and 17.2 million children.” –feedingamerica.org
