Restaurants and Retailers
Working Group

The Restaurants and Retailers Working Group is focused on highlighting grocery stores and restaurants who are successfully reducing and redistributing food waste in our community. We are working closely with Manna Food Bank, the largest food donation center in Western North Carolina, to gather information and support their needs.


Redistribution is focused on compiling resources and creating a community to connect edible food sources that may otherwise be wasted. We aim to find the highest and best use for food surpluses by facilitating local partnerships and identifying and bridging gaps in services.
