Food Recovery Verified (FRV) is a program of Food Recovery Network that recognizes businesses and events for sending their surplus food to people, not landfills. 


If you represent a food business or catered event that already recovers surplus food and donates it to a registered non-profit, fill out an application!

Once your application is processed we'll send you your FRV window sticker and will work with you one-on-one to make sure your food recovery program is as easy and effective as possible. It's that simple. 

You're already ahead of the curve — let people know it.
