Excess Food Opportunities Map

The U.S. EPA Excess Food Opportunities Map supports nationwide diversion of excess food from landfills. The interactive map identifies and displays facility-specific information about potential generators and recipients of excess food in the industrial, commercial and institutional sectors and also provides estimates of excess food by generator type.

The map displays the locations of more than 500,000 potential excess food generators. These include:

  • correctional facilities.
  • educational institutions.
  • food banks.
  • healthcare facilities.
  • hospitality industry.
  • food manufacturing and processing facilities.
  • food wholesalers and distributors.

The map also displays the locations of communities with source separated organics programs, as well as more than 4,000 potential recipients of excess food. These include:

  • anaerobic digestion facilities.
  • composting facilities.
  • food banks.

The mapped establishments and their locations are provided for informational purposes only.
