    Alternative Fuel Foundation


    The Alternative Fuel Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization that connects food service providers with cooking oil collection and recycling companies throughout the northeast. Organizations choose to donate or sell used cooking oil, restaurants can feel good knowing that all of the vegetable oil collected by our foundation partners is converted into clean burning biofuel and not used for animal feed.

    Funds are available for educational institutions to aid in the development of programs that promote renewable energy, environmental sustainability, and earth stewardship. Preference is given to funding requests that promote the awareness and use of alternative fuels or promote the concept of sustainability. Projects that encourage parent involvement and build stronger community spirit will be favored.
