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


http://asfr.org/home.html and
http://www.2harvest.org/our_programs/twelve_baskets/ are both programs in
Minnesota. The Twelve Baskets program began in 1984 and has had a good track
record and has some good data. ASFR, All Seasons Food Rescue, was started by
a former program manger for the Twelve Baskets program, Yvonne Wood, who has
lots of experience running a food rescue program.
Both would be good resources.

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>.
