The Guardian recently highlighted web and mobile services that make food recovery easier and more efficient. These services help connect surplus food with businesses and organizations that can distribute it. For example, applications, such as Spoiler Alert and Zero Percent, provide alerts or mobile apps to sell or donate surplus food. Read more about Spoiler Alert’s User Spotlight Series in our recent blog post.

Spoiler Alert is participating in RecyclingWorks’ workshop, Getting Started with Food Donation, on June 28 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 food rescue programs.

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

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