Spoiler Alert created a “Beginner’s Guide to Food Waste,” which introduces the significance and ramifications of wasted food, government calls to action, awareness campaigns, and resources for reducing wasted food.

The guide includes ReFED’s Roadmap, Natural Resource Defense Council’s Save the Food Campaign, and toolkits, such as the Food Waste Reduction Alliance’s Best Practices & Emerging Solutions Guide.

An additional resource in Spoiler Alert’s Guide is RecyclingWorks. RecyclingWorks engaged food banks and food rescue organizations, state and local health officials, and businesses to develop Food Donation Guidance for businesses in Massachusetts. This document provides guidance to businesses and institutions interested in establishing food donation programs and includes four key steps for success.

RecyclingWorks also partnered with the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic to create fact sheets on date labeling, liability protections, and tax incentives for food donation.

RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts also provides assistance to businesses and institutions with recycling and food waste reduction through composting and food donation. To speak to a recycling expert, call our hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at
