Introducing: Wasted Food Solutions

We are thrilled to launch our newest resource: Wasted Food Solutions. This website gives businesses, service providers, and policy makers access to the resources they need to address one of our biggest challenges: wasted food.

CET acts as a catalyst to accelerate the development of a vibrant marketplace to divert wasted food from the commercial and institutional sectors. We have been a leader in the wasted food reduction and diversion movement for more than 20 years, implementing some of the first wasted food composting programs in the country, and contributing to effective public policy.

We believe that better managing wasted food is critical in order to address climate change, feed more hungry people, and grow our economy. If you are a city, state or federal agency, industry group or foundation, and want to tackle the issue of wasted food, please contact us!

    CT has a huge problem with wasted food! Restaurants are unable to donate food at end of day is one concern. We have people starving and our businesses just throw away tons every week!

    • Center for EcoTechnology

      Feeding hungry people is a critical component to reducing wasted food! CET is working with food rescue organizations in the state, such as Foodshare, CT Food Bank, and Food Rescue US, to facilitate donation partnerships and feed more hungry people. In addition, Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic created Connecticut-specific legal fact sheets on food donation to help assuage Restaurant and other businesses’ concerns. Please let us know if CET can be of any assistance, or clarify any donation questions.
