Make Food Not Waste – $25,000

The 2030 Project

In the fall of 2023, Make Food Not Waste (MFNW) proposed to help Michigan reach its goal of cutting food waste in half by 2030 by redirecting the food waste in Southeast Michigan's top 15 most populated cities away from landfills. Dubbed The 2030 Project, the plan attracted funding from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy. In the first phase of the project, MFNW is working with the first city, Southfield, to create a tactical blueprint that will encompass the city's food system and incorporate national best practices in food waste reduction, rescue and recycling. This grant will support the second phase of the project, which begins in September 2024 and involves the implementation of the Southfield program and the adaptation of the blueprint to two additional cities - Dearborn and Sterling Heights.
