From rescuing food to feed vulnerable communities to keeping e-waste out of the landfill through repair, StopWaste’s new grantees are committed to not only preventing waste, but also helping to build resilient communities across Alameda County.
A total of $580,985 in grant funding will go to 49 local nonprofit and for-profit organizations this year for projects to support and improve food recovery and donation, salvage, reuse, repair, and redistribution infrastructure. Since 1996, StopWaste has provided more than $9 million in funding to local organizations and businesses. We continue to prioritize food recovery and donation organizations on the frontlines of helping to address food insecurity in our communities, particularly given the rise in need due to COVID-19. We welcome you to explore previous and current grantees on our website.
