Food recovery organizations or services that will collect their edible food for food recovery.
Food recovery organizations that will accept the edible food that the commercial edible food generator self-hauls to the food recovery organization for food recovery.
The entities listed below are those currently servicing the City of Lynwood. Each entity has represented its compliance with the regulations cited above, and would be pleased to work with local Commercial Edible Food Generators for the greater purpose of meeting the overwhelming need of feeding the underprivileged living among us.
