The Center for EcoTechnology (CET) helps people and businesses save energy and reduce waste. CET acts as a catalyst to accelerate the development of a vibrant marketplace to divert wasted food from the commercial and institutional sectors. We have been a leader in the wasted food reduction and diversion movement for more than 20 years, implementing some of the first wasted food composting programs in the country, and contributing to effective public policy. In collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), CET designed and operates RecyclingWorks MA, the award-winning wasted food reduction assistance program in Massachusetts. We offer program design and implementation services throughout the Northeast U.S. and beyond. We believe that better managing wasted food is critical in order to address climate change, feed more hungry people, and grow our economy. For more information about CET, click here.

Hungry Harvest - Hungry Harvest recovers and delivers delicious, customizable boxes of produce, starting at $15/week. Recovered produce is fruits and vegetables that are perfectly good to eat, but would normally get thrown away because of aesthetic imperfections (misshapen or off-color) or logistical problems (when grocery stores over-order produce, they can reject truckloads which would get thrown away). To date Hungry Harvest has recovered 33 million pounds of food, while donating 26 million pounds more to local hunger relief programs as part of our mission to end food waste, and eradicate hunger.

Three Square is Southern Nevada’s only food bank and largest hunger relief organization, serving Las Vegas and all of Clark, Lincoln, Esmeralda and Nye counties. Since opening in 2007, Three Square has provided more than 444 million pounds of food to hundreds of thousands of people in need and earned a reputation as one of the most efficient and effective food banks in the country. When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, Three Square immediately implemented a disaster response plan to answer sudden school and business closures, drastic declines in retail food donations, social distancing limitations on volunteer efforts, reduced on-site staff support, and the need for low-contact food distributions. Within days, Three Square had increased food distribution by 250,000 meals a week and increased the capacity of its Call Center to refer Southern Nevadans to available food resources, social services, and unemployment benefits. A member of the Feeding America network of food banks, Three Square remains committed to its mission of providing wholesome food to hungry people, while passionately pursuing a hunger-free community.
