Rock and Wrap It Up! is a global think tank working to reduce poverty. Using greening tactics, they recover food and other assets to be given to agencies fighting poverty, increasing their operating budgets. This allows the agencies to hire more service providers such as tutors, social workers, job placement counselors and mental health counselors to attack the root cause of poverty. Rock and Wrap It Up! recovers food and other assets in Sports, Music, Schools, Film, T.V., Hospitals and Hotels. Rock and Wrap It Up! helped to write and implement the Federal Food Donation Act of 2008, which encourages all Federal buildings to feed the hungry and keep food out of landfills. Hungerpedia.com, launched in 2011 is a web encyclopedia that enables potential donors to find suitable anti-poverty agencies across North America. Rock and Wrap It Up! has launched The Whole Earth Calculator. This mobile app quantifies and tweets food recovery statistics sensitizing social and environmental efforts to the public.
