U.S. Food Waste Policy Finder Released

The Food Law and Policy Clinic of Harvard Law School released a great new tool yesterday to help planners, policymakers and community members review and evaluate policies related to food waste. Created in partnership with ReFED, the U.S. Food Waste Policy Finder is an interactive tool for exploring federal and state policies that affect food waste reduction and diversion. It provides a comprehensive database of laws surrounding food waste and contains searchable maps that allow users to explore state-level laws around date labeling, tax incentives and liability protection for food donation, feeding food scraps to animals, and organic waste bans and waste recycling laws.
