Expanding food recovery programs is a critical action in a community’s overall strategy to reduce wasted food, but some efforts may deliver more community value than others. Oregon DEQ will speak to their cutting-edge, LCA research on the environmental, economic and nutritional trade-offs between different pathways to rescue and redistribute food.
