Food Councils across North Carolina Work Together to Bring Local Food Waste and Recovery Issues to the State Policy Level

To the food councils, the issue seemed clear: a lack of information and clarity around food recovery regulations was preventing food from being recovered and served to those in need.

Read this multi-year story of food waste and recovery advocacy efforts and how it is critical to continue emphasizing the importance of food recovery issues to the Conference Committee members, hoping they will prioritize the request in the final budget. NCAH, the NC Restaurant and Lodging Association (NCRLA), and the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association (CFSA) have all lobbied on behalf of the food councils in favor of the bill and the budget appropriation.
