The North Carolina Food Donation and Compost Resource Map identifies locations to rescue edible food and manage food waste in and near the state for residents and businesses. It includes information on:
  • Food banks
  • Food waste collection services
  • Food waste drop-off sites
  • Compost sites
  • Compost resources (backyard compost bin sales and education)

Users can select any or all these layers to understand food recovery efforts in North Carolina and learn more about the resources available to them. Not all sites serve residential and commercial clients, and certain locations only serve residents of the town or county. Click on the site pins or use the tools to learn more.

The information on food scrap drop-off sites is provided in partnership with the North Carolina Composting Council. The map is hosted by the Division of Environmental Assistance and Customers Service (DEACS). For corrections or to add a site, contact Christine Wittmeier.
