The EPA recently upgraded the Food Recovery Challenge (FRC) website. Any business or organization can join the FRC as a participant or endorser. Participants help prevent food waste by setting and tracking food waste reduction goals that follow the EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy. Endorsers help educate organizations and businesses about the environmental costs of food waste. Fifty Massachusetts entities – including colleges, grocers, hotels, non-profits, and government agencies—are currently active in the FRC.


The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, which funds RecyclingWorks in MA, is a Food Recovery Challenge Endorser. RecyclingWorks assists businesses and institutions with recycling and food waste reduction through composting and food donation.
