Thanks to a partnership with the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic and the DC Food Recovery Work Group, the DC Food Recovery Legal Guide has been updated and expanded just in time for Food Recovery Week, which starts today.

You can access the guide here. It is also listed under Policy and Law Resources on the FRWG website.

Policymakers, businesses, emergency food service providers, farmers, and community members interested in a detailed look at the laws, policies, and incentives that are continuing to evolve to reduce food waste will find this informative guide helpful.

First published in 2017, this 2019 guide reflects changes to law in the District of Columbia since the expansive D.C. Save Good Food Amendment Act was passed last year.

The guide provides answers to key questions on who is covered by the law, tax incentives for food donations, liability protections for donations, date labels, food safety, and food recovery in K-12 schools.

The new guide also includes a high-level overview of major laws and policies in neighboring Maryland and Virginia.
