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


Food Chain was a national organization of food rescue organizations that
collected and redistributed prepared foods on a same day basis. They have
merged with Second harvest, so Gary's reference should be helpful.

Another well developed program in California in addition to Food Finders in
Southern California is Food Runners in San Francisco. Their website is at

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

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!
