Food Recovery Verified Terms and Conditions

All of the application information that you have entered is correct to the best of your knowledge.

Acceptable Use

The window sticker and digital copy of Food Recovery Network’s (FRN) Food Recovery Verified logo will only be used to raise awareness that the Verified food establishment recovers its surplus unsold food.


Verification Terms

Your verification with Food Recovery Network (FRN) lasts one year unless otherwise noted. Once a participant has received the official verification email from FRN that the participant's establishment has been verified, the verification is valid through the end of the month one year after the verification begins. For example, if a new verification is recognized on January 10, 2016, the verification is valid through January 31, 2017.

Recognized verifications must reapply on an annual basis so that FRN can confirm donation status to non-profits.


Copyrights & Trademarks

The trademarks, names, logos and service marks (collectively "trademarks") of FRV are registered and unregistered trademarks of FRN. The window sticker and digital logo should not be construed as granting any license or right to use these trademarks without the prior written permission of FRN. The written content displayed on the logos is owned by FRN and may not be reproduced in whole, or in part, without the express written permission of FRN.


Limitation of Liability

The FRN verification logo expresses the sole fact that a verified participant recovers food to a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and does not verify that participant has completed or adhered to the appropriate food safety and handling training/certifications/requirements; nor does this recognition speak to the quality of food prepared, provided, and/or served by the recognized participant. FRN is not and shall not be liable for any issues arising from any food product prepared, provided, and/or served by the recognized participant.
