RE: [greenyes] Question about small quantity perishable food wast e recovery programs


Susan,

Here in Seattle we have a program called Seattle's Table. The program is
run by an organization called Food Lifeline. Food Lifeline accepts food
donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers.
Their Seattle's Table program accepts prepared and perishable food from
restaurants, hotels, hospitals, delis, caterers and cafeterias. They pick
up between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday in two refrigerated
vans. If you'd like to learn more about the program, contact Food Lifeline
at (206) 545-6600 or (800) 404-7543. Their Web address is
www.foodlifeline.org.

Subject: [greenyes] Question about small quantity perishable food waste
recovery programs



Hi,
I am interested in learning about programs that help coordinate the recovery
of perishable food (e.g., overabundance of prepared food from restaurants,
social events, etc.) for use at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and
anywhere else. Does anyone know of such an organized program? I will be
interested in learning about how they operate, and how transportation is
arranged, so any program and/or contact info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Susan Bush
