BEND, OR -- Several local agencies will share a portion of grants issued by the Department of Environmental Quality. The DEQ says the money will promote the prevention, recovery or reuse of solid waste. 

 

In Bend, The Environmental Center is getting $37,253 for its “Food Too Good To Waste” project, which aims to reduce household food waste. Another $50,000 is going to NeighborImpact's “Edible Food Recovery” program; it diverts 50,000 tons of food from landfills and feeds thousands of people each month. And, the Sisters Habitat ReStore will receive nearly $42,871 to purchase a new box truck and equipment to increase donations and keep hundreds of thousands of pounds of materials out of landfills.
