Who we are

FoodCycle is a non-profit organization that has partnered up with your local farmers’ market to benefit you, your farmers, and the environment you live in.

Our goal is to create a composting community that has a positive impact on food waste levels and promotes a greener environment.

how_you_fit_in
By collecting your compostable kitchen scraps, you’re cutting down on food waste that reaches landfills.

You will receive one dollar credit for every pound of eligible scraps that you trade in at participating locations.

We use the scraps you trade in as compost for your local farmers’ soil. Composting can benefit the soil structurally and chemically.
