A recent article in MetroWest Daily News describes how the Massachusetts Commercial Organics Waste Ban has the potential to help address the problem of food insecurity in the state. The article is written by the CEO, David B. Waters, of Community Servings. Waters’ organization transforms what many consider “food waste” into meals for people homebound by illness. For food rescue organizations, blemished and surplus foods that are not considered sellable are the very ingredients that form the basis of nutritious meals for those in need.

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