1. Important Information

Please note, while our National Open Call for Solutions is now closed, we are still interested in hearing about your work and will review any additional applications on a rolling basis.

In response to the impacts of COVID-19 on our food system – especially the increase in wasted food that could have gone to the growing number of people facing food insecurity – ReFED launched the ReFED COVID-19 Food Waste Solutions Fund to quickly get funds to those organizations that are able to rapidly scale their impact. The Fund is distributing its first $1 million of grants to organizations that will - in the next 90 days - drive impact of more than a total of 10 million pounds of food waste prevented or 8.3 million meals rescued.

Although the first round of applications and grant awards is now closed, we continue to welcome additional submissions to be considered for future funding rounds and will review them on a rolling basis. Knowing time is one of your most valuable resources right now, please include no more than 3-5 sentences per each written response question. If we feel additional information is needed, we will follow-up directly with you. Answering questions truthfully, clearly, and concisely will enable us to make quicker decisions about whether the Fund might support your COVID-19 food waste solution.

Please note that the information you submit will not be shared on an attributable, individual organization level, unless special permission is received. ReFED retains the right to share anonymized and aggregate figures and insights.
