Winners choose food-waste-fightin’ restaurants

A woman collects a drop-off composting bucket from the Drop-Off Center operatorDiane K. of Winooski won a $35 gift certificate to the food-waste-fightin’ restaurant of her choice when her name was picked as the February winner of CSWD’s Drop-Off Composting Challenge. The Challenge invites residents to bring their household food scraps to any CSWD Drop-Off Center.

(Those scraps end up at Green Mountain Compost, where they’re made into plant-boosting compost.)

Our food-waste fighters list keeps growing. When you’ve got the munchies, support establishments that fight food waste — and be sure to let them know you’re there to support their efforts.

Cafes, restaurants, delis, pizza joints, bars, hotels, grocers — many businesses are doing their part to keep food scraps out of the landfill by:

  • Donating quality fresh or prepared foods to local food shelves for hungry families,
  • Delivering food waste to local farms to feed their pigs or chickens, or
  • Sending all of their food scraps and plate scrapings to Green Mountain Compost to be turned into fabulous local compost and other soil amendments!

Let these businesses know you appreciate their efforts, and that you saw them listed by CSWD as one of our allies in fighting food waste.
