STEP 4:

SHARE THE LOVE

Before considering throwing into the waste bin, think about who could still enjoy it. Do you have safe and delicious leftovers from a staff meal or a catered event? Put your excess to good use and help feed those in need in your community.
Some companies are scared of donating food because they aren’t sure what their protections are. Read through the Good Samaritan Law and learn how the law can protect you.

Luckily, there are plenty of organizations that will work with you to facilitate the donation and repurpose it for those in need. It's easy! Discover them below.
