Join the Zero Food Waste Coalition’s presentation of a new resource for state leaders to advance efforts to reduce food waste across the U.S.—responding to consumer demand, creating jobs and economic opportunities, ensuring food makes it to those experiencing food insecurity, and addressing environmental harms and climate change. The "State Policy Toolkit to Achieve Zero Food Waste" contains a range of tried and tested policy opportunities that states can use to prevent food waste and keep it out of landfills and incinerators. The target audience for this toolkit is state policymakers and advocates—whether their interest stems from concerns around climate change and environmental sustainability, financial responsibility, increasing food rescue, or finding opportunities to support local farmers, all of which can be achieved through policies described in this toolkit.
