As a Waste No Food volunteer, you can help us expand by signing up new food donors and charities, or you can help deliver thousands of meals to charities serving the hungry.
Waste No Food enables the food industry to donate excess food, when it becomes available, to local qualified charities.
All 50 states and the District of Columbia have in place a law, called the Good Samaritan Law. This protects all donors from liability and the organizations handling the food are responsible for all liability.
The organizations are responsible for the transportation of all food. Many organizations have refrigerated trucks for this purpose. If an organization does not consistently pick up food it claims, then restaurants can choose not to work with the organization.
In order for an organization to participate in Waste No Food, the organization must be vetted for authenticity. Waste No Food assures donors that only legitimate charities can access the website to secure donations.
During the recession, charities have experienced a sharp drop in donations, but demand for their services have been higher than ever. In fact many people who have been donors to charities, are now requiring assistance. Organizations need more resources and Waste No Food provides them with these resources.
Yes. It is in fact encouraged that both organizations and restaurants rate each other. This is a good way to identify the most reliable entities and to help other members of Waste No Food make the best decision on whom to collaborate with.
