ORGANIZATION: WASTE LESS SOLUTIONS

Image_202207061815

We save good food from ending up in the landfills by engaging food organizations to donate their surplus food and by utilizing local volunteers, called rescuers. You could help us with both of these!

You can sign up to rescue edible food from our donors using your own car, and transport it to our nonprofit partners who distribute the food to the people who are food-insecure in our Utah communities.

Our volunteers use a food rescue app to see what food needs to be rescued, details on pick-up, and where to deliver. With no need for advanced scheduling, a rescuer can typically complete a rescue in 30 minutes. In a short amount of time you have made a difference for the planet and for peoples' lives.

To get started volunteering, simply visit Food Rescue US and create your account to help play a critical role in rescuing and delivering meals.

We could use your help getting the word out to food organizations about what we do. Do you have a favorite restaurant or store you go to? Do you drive by a food business every day? You can help us by asking, "what do you do with your surplus food?" If they throw it away tell them, "do you know you can donate it to people in need through Waste Less Solutions?"

If you are interested in helping us with this, check our list of existing food donors, if you don't see a donor that you think should be on this list, here's what you can do:

  • Share a link or print our food donor information guide to give to food businesses.
  • Fill out our donor suggestion form

Please reach out to mairin@wastelesssolutions.org if you have any questions, or if you need materials for outreach.
