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


Susan,

Check out Second Harvest at http://www.secondharvest.org/. This is a national network of food reuse programs.

Also, many cities now have Food Recycling directories. An excellent example entitled "Food for Thought" from the City of Los Angeles can be obtained from 213-473-8228 or <SRCRD@no.address>.

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!
