Retail Food Recovery Program

Retail Food Recovery Program icon

Helping retailers reduce their food waste and ensure that their unsalable food is put to its highest end-use.

How it works

Connect icon


Each day, retailers sort their surplus food for a charitable organization to collect it.

Coordinate icon


The charitable organization weighs and sorts the food, and shares it amongst a network of other charitable organizations (and possibly farmers too).

Track icon


The retailer and charitable organization have access to real-time metrics on the quantity of food being donated, where the donations are going and the impact they are having.

This partnership meant that a store was not just donating to just one charity, but dozens of charities. A store could never manage that on its own
