About Us

FoodCycle LA works to reduce landfill gas emissions by partnering
with local food retailers to prevent food waste in Los Angeles.

FoodCycle LA

Feed people not landfills

FoodCycle LA recovers and diverts surplus food to communities experiencing food insecurity. We partner with food retailers to reroute surplus food away from landfills to organizations working to feed hungry people.

HOW WE’RE DOING IT

Leveraging Technology

FoodCycle is dedicated to introducing innovative technology into the food recovery space.

  • We introduced the ChowMatch APP to increase our impact and better recover and route excess food.
  • FoodCycle collaborated with Food Oasis to create a database of organizations that are serving hungry people, so that we can move resources into the food deserts of LA where the need is greatest.
