Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic Legal Fact Sheets

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

As a project of the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC), NRRA was chosen as the regional organization to host the Food Policy Fact sheets for New Hampshire and provide links for our neighboring New England states. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the barrier to food donations.  FLPC conducted a survey, on behalf of, and with the support of, the Food Safety for Donations Working Group. Top officials who regulate food safety at food service and retail food establishments, were interviewed to better understand safe food donation practices in order to reduce food waste and increase food recovery. This survey provides the first comprehensive data on this topic at a national level.  The following are guidance documents to help stakeholders navigate food donation and food recovery. The fact sheets cover Food Donation Liability, Tax Incentives, Date Labeling, and Feed Scraps to Animals.
