At Concrete Jungle, Adam Hick’s work involves simultaneously fighting food insecurity and climate change, diverting food waste from farms to help the local community access fresh fruits and vegetables. Wasted food is a significant contributor to climate change, as it entails wasting the enormous amounts of water and energy that go into growing, harvesting, processing, transporting, and cooking our food. Additionally, food waste ends up in our landfills, and as it breaks down, it produces planet-warming greenhouse gases like methane. On top of that, one in eight Georgians are food-insecure and lack access to fresh, healthy produce. The work Adam is leading at Concrete Jungle is helping to address multiple issues that our communities face, helping to draw down climate emissions while addressing hunger through millions of servings of fruits and vegetables made accessible via donations to local food banks and shelters.
