Our waste prevention grantees are not only leaders in innovative solutions to preventing waste, they are helping to build resilient communities in Alameda County. Take Hope 4 the Heart, an all-volunteer nonprofit that rescues edible food and provides weekly food deliveries to affordable housing and senior communities across the county. Or Make It Home, whose mission is to furnish homes of families and individuals transitioning out of crisis or homelessness with donated, gently used, repurposed furnishings and household goods. We welcome you to explore previous and current grantees on our website.
Approximately $850K in grant funding will go to support 55 businesses and nonprofits working in five separate upstream focus areas: reuse/repair, food waste prevention, reusable foodware, food donation equipment and reusable transport packaging. Since 1996, StopWaste has provided more than $9 million in funding to local organizations and businesses.
