Real-Time Data

To date we have redirected 1,798,769 pounds of good food from landfills to hungry bellies in the city of Boulder.

That's equivalent to 600 full size manta rays. That many manta rays would eat 233,840 pounds of plankton a week. Manta rays are way cool.

899 tons of food is an awesome start, and has huge impacts in Boulder, but there's so much more to be done. This amount of food would fill 13 standard railroad boxcars---only a tiny bite into the 450,000 boxcars worth of food that are wasted annually in the US!

Keeping with our commitment to sustainability, in the last month 77% of food pick ups were performed by our hardworking volunteers using human-powered transportation (i.e., with bikes). And, since BFR began, 83% of all pick-ups, regardless of weather conditions, have been performed with bikes.
