Breaking Ground

If you own a local farm, grocery, restaurant or cafe, you have struggled with how best to handle food waste, for a variety of reasons. The EPA is looking for small businesses to provide solutions to our food waste crisis. Here is the summary from the SBA and a link to the EPA’s Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR). Would be great to see local Jacksonville businesses apply. Good luck!
