An article in the Boston College student publication, The Gavel, describes the college’s food donation program. Every Bite Counts (eBC) is a student volunteer group that has been helping donate leftover dining hall food since 2005. Five nights each week, student volunteers package and label leftovers from dinner. The group works with Lovin’ Spoonfuls Food Rescue to deliver this food to Boston-area homeless shelters and food pantries.

RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts recently posted guidelines to help businesses and institutions that serve food to safely donate surplus food to rescue organizations. RecyclingWorks also provides assistance to businesses and institutions with recycling and food waste reduction through composting and food donation.
