In 2022, Climate Corps® is teaming up with ReFED to launch a pilot program to bolster the capacity of companies to tackle food waste.

Our private sector partners on this initiative for 2022 are Albertsons [Companies], Amy’s Kitchen, Aramark, CAVA, Conagra Brands, The J.M. Smucker Co., Sodexo, and United Natural Foods.

The fellows will tackle projects ranging from food waste data collection and analysis to strategy development to food waste solution implementation and refinement.

Together, ReFED and Climate Corps are supporting the fellows and companies by developing a robust training program for the fellows. Additionally, ReFED will serve as a technical advisor to the food waste cohort and will provide ongoing support throughout the summer.
