Greater Cincinnati Smart Kitchen Initiative

The Smart Kitchen Initiative is a partnership between Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District and Green Umbrella. The initiative offers assistance to reduce pre-consumer food waste and/or donate prepared foods from mid- to high-volume food service operators in Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell, Grant and Kenton counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn and Franklin counties in Indiana. 

Participating kitchens may receive funds and training to help save on food purchases and improve operation efficiency.

How the Program Works

Participants will also receive free technical support from experts at Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District and Green Umbrella.
