MeetingsNet published an article outlining resources for donating excess food from events. These tips include finding a local food bank, the ReFED’s Roadmap to Reduce U.S. Food Waste economic study and action plan, and applications such as Spoiler Alert that connect food donors and food recipients.

Learn more about food donation at RecyclingWorks’ workshop, Getting Started with Food Donation, on June 28th in Cambridge. This workshop, which is part of Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic’s Reduce and Recover: Save Food for People conference, will help connect food service businesses to Spoiler Alert and other food rescue services.

If you are a food service business in the greater Boston area, register here for the workshop.
