We can help you take the next step!

Center for EcoTechnology (CET) is building relationships in Michigan with some stakeholders that are interested in addressing wasted food. We have shared information with the West Michigan Sustainable Business Alliance and are exploring partnering on projects to increase the capacity to address this important issue.

Helpful Michigan Wasted Food Resources

  • Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act
    • The Federal Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act (Public Law 104-210) protects donors from liability when donating to nonprofit organizations and protects donors from civil and criminal liability should the product, donated in good faith, later cause harm to the needy recipient.

Michigan Legal/Regulatory Requirements

  • Currently, Michigan does not have any laws on wasted food diversion.
