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


Susan,
The Food Recovery Program of Waukesha County is a growing program in SE
Wisconsin. They work to provide businesses with a convenient and
reliable system to donate excess edible food items, especially
perishable foods, and effectively distribute these items to area food
pantries, meal sites and shelters. Here is a link to an article about
their program:

Contact:
Karen Tredwell or Katie Kaluzynski
Food Pantry of Waukesha County

There is also a group in San Francisco called Food Runners
(http://www.foodrunners.org/) They pick up excess perishable and
prepared food from businesses and deliver it to shelters and
neighborhood programs that feeds the hungry.

Hope this helps,
Toral

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
