USAID’s “IMPACTblog”: Ghanaian Chef Works to End Hunger by Reducing Food Waste
Fridah Wanjiku, digital communications specialist and virtual student foreign service intern with USAID, profiles Elijah Amoo Addo, a chef in Ghana who launched Food for All Africa, the first community food bank in Ghana. Wanjiku writes, “The center creates efficient and sustainable nutrition streams for low-income and vulnerable communities by redistributing surplus food from restaurants [and] working with rural smallholder farmers to connect their produce to urban hospitality companies. … Today, Food for All Africa recovers up to $5,700 worth of food each month from businesses within the food supply chain — including manufacturers, importers, farmers, and hotels…” (11/28).
