Before food should even be considered for the waste bin, think about who could still enjoy it. Do you have safe and delicious leftovers from a catered event? Put your excess to good use and help feed those in need in your community.

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.
