US food waste policy finder

Resource type:
Case studies and tools

This tool helps you discover policies at U.S. federal and state levels determining food loss. You can filter searches by criteria:

  • Liability protection
  • Tax incentives
  • Animal feed
  • Organic waste bans and waste recycling laws

Fear of liability is a major reason many food donors fail to donate food. However, the policy repository demonstrates that federal legislation protects food donors and recipient non-profit organisations. Although the site requires conscientious effort to navigate, it has helpful content for farmers, retailers, food processors and business.
