By taking The PLEDGE™, restaurants commit to reducing their carbon footprints, saving money, and giving back to the community.
The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste is an international third-party certification program that instructs restaurants, hotels, convention centers, and other foodservice businesses in tactics to reduce the amount of food they throw away.
In partnership with Food Rescue US – Detroit, Make Food Not Waste is the first organization in the United States to offer this program. Sign up today to be at the forefront of sustainability in the foodservice industry.
Restaurants that take The PLEDGE™ will go through a process of tracking their food waste and implementing a series of reduction tactics in seven key areas.
After completing all the steps and going through an audit, participating restaurants receive a certification at the bronze, silver, gold, or all-star levels, depending on how many food waste reduction steps they complete.
Make Food Not Waste will be there as a guide and cheerleader through the whole process.
