Wasted Food Assistance

Rhode Island’s Wasted Food Solutions: A Collaborative Effort by CET

CET has helped many businesses and institutions in Rhode Island learn more about food recovery and wasted food diversion opportunities.

When it comes to preventing and diverting a wide range of materials from disposal, we can offer no-cost support! We help a range of businesses, from those that are just getting started to those who want to take their existing efforts to the next level.

CET helps Rhode Island businesses and institutions divert wasted food and supports the growth of the service providers marketplace.

CET builds awareness of the RI Food Waste Recycling Law and partners with service providers such as Phood to support their source reduction technologies in dining halls across the state. These efforts and others are in partnership with Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, Rhode Island Department of Health, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation, and the Director of Food Strategy to support the goals of the Relish Rhody plan to reduce wasted food.
