What You Can Do

  • Reduce food waste. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Food Recovery Hierarchy to prevent and divert wasted food, reducing the volume of excess food is most preferred option for preventing food waste.

  • Donate. If you are a restaurant or business that produces more food than you use pass it on. There are individuals and organizations in our community that could save it from being wasted. Contact the Eagle River Valley Food Bank for donation guidelines (see below).

  • Could you or someone you know use a little help putting food on the table? The Eagle River Valley Food Bank provides fresh produce and packaged food free of charge to residents across the valley through a variety of programs.
