Safely donating prepared foods

Tuesday, June 19th
7:45am – 8:45am
Primer Coffee
1400 W. Holly, Bellingham


This is a commercial food industry centered workshop but it is open to the public. Community groups that put on events, as well as individual citizens, may also find the content valuable.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how you can participate in the Sustainable Connections’ Food Recovery Initiative and how you can donate your leftover prepared edible food to hunger relief agencies
  • Learn applicable health codes and how to adhere to them to insure the safety of foods donated
  • Meet key personnel from recipient organizations (Miracle Food Network, NW Youth Services, Lighthouse Mission)
  • Learn about resources available to have your donations picked up and delivered to those in need for FREE


Create a dialogue that helps us understand what obstacles we will encounter when working with caterers to eliminate wasted food.
