Food Rescue Rebates

Program Ongoing Until Closes: 30th of June 2027 or until funding is expended Value: Up to $2,000 per rebate Run By: NSW Environment Protection Authority Further Information: https://www.epa.nsw.gov.au/working-together/grants/organics-infrastructure-fund/food-rescue-rebates

The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is working to reduce good quality food suitable for human consumption from being disposed to landfill. The Food Rescue Rebates are available to expand food rescue and relief capacity to safely manage increasing amounts of rescued food in NSW. The rebates are part of a suite of organics programs available to support NSW to halve organics waste to landfill by 2030.

The objectives of this rebate program are to:

  • increase the diversion (i.e. rescue) of quality food suitable for human consumption from landfill
  • support NSW food rescue and relief organisations to expand their capacity to manage increasing amounts of rescued food to provide to the community
  • provide a simplified funding alternative for small food rescue and relief projects.

Eligible applicants can submit an application for funding up to $2,000 (inc. GST) per financial year, per eligible address.
