“It’s easier/faster/cheaper to throw it away” is a common excuse in food businesses. Waste Not Food Taxi overcomes that obstacle by maintaining a network of hundreds of volunteer drivers, who will pick up your excess edible food and deliver it to the nearest hunger relief agency. Food scraps that are not edible are passed on to the county’s facility that extracts energy for electricity and composts the rest. Zero food waste! Based in Portland and Washington County, Oregon, this service is mirrored in other cities across the country. Waste Not will connect you with your local program, or will recruit volunteers near you to facilitate your conservation efforts.
