An article by Lauren Palumbo, Chief Operating Officer of the Boston-based food Rescue Organization Lovin’ Spoonfuls, describes how grocers can help solve the problem of food waste while benefiting their bottom line. Food rescue organizations help connect grocery stores, wholesalers, and farms with social service entities that serve those in need. By donating food, grocers can reduce waste disposal fees, receive tax credits, and keep food out of landfills. Lovin’ Spoonfuls worked with Hannaford Supermarkets to create a food rescue program that has already saved 200,000 pounds of food from their locations in Waltham and Norwood, MA.
