These 11 Baltimore Organizations Fighting Food Waste Just Received Grants for Their Work

By

Reducing food waste, either in your home kitchen or as a chef, has a slew of benefits. It saves you money, forces you to get creative, reduce the amount of organics you're sending to landfills (or to the compost bin), and more. But if you're one of these 11 lucky Baltimore organizations, you'll also be getting paid to reduce food waste, thanks to a new grant organized by the City of Baltimore along with the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and funded by The Rockefeller Foundation. In a blog post on Wednesday, May 28, the NRDC announced the 11 grant recipients who are working to reduce food waste in their communities. 

Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh first announced the Baltimore Food Waste Recovery Strategy in September 2018. Now, eight months later, the NRDC has unveiled the NRDC Food Matters Funds Award Recipients, which are a combination of food markets, schools, farms, and more.
