Rescuing Unsold Organic Food from Co-ops and Natural Food Stores

MEANS Database is a nationwide food recovery organization dedicated to eliminating food waste and feeding the hungry. Unlike many other food reclamation programs, MEANS never charges a donation fee — one of many ways they’re making it easier for businesses and nonprofits to donate food.

Rescuing Unsold Organic Food from Co-ops and Natural Food Stores is a MEANS project to encourage more donations of local and organic food. In year one of the program, they aim to recruit 100 co-op and natural food retailers to become donors.

MEANS Database will receive a $15,000 grant from Simply Organic in 2021 to grow the number of retailers participating in their Rescuing Unsold Organic Food from Co-ops and Natural Food Stores program.
