For step three, it’s time to connect with a food recovery organization or service. First you will need to gather some information about your business or organization, so you are ready to connect, then you will need to reach out to develop a partnership with a local organization that can pick up and/or accept your food and serve it to people. There are two types of organizations that pick up or accept surplus edible food:
- Food recovery organizations engage in the collection or receipt of edible food for distribution to people in need, either directly or through other charitable organizations and groups.
- A food recovery service is a person or organization that collects and transports edible food to a food recovery organization or other groups for distribution to people in need.
