Taking Action on Food Waste Policy

WWF is partnering with a coalition of non-governmental organizations to develop a comprehensive food loss and waste policy action plan that will help the US meet its goal of halving food waste by 2030, while also working to build a more regenerative and resilient food system, mitigate climate change, and reverse nature loss. Building off of this action plan, WWF advocates for specific policies—such as the Zero Food Waste Act and School Food Recovery Act—to give communities across the country the support they need to measure, prevent, rescue, and recycle food waste.

All of WWF's Food Loss and Waste projects are viewed through the lens of addressing larger systemic food inequities experienced by communities that face barriers—such as immigrants, people of color, and Indigenous peoples. Our aim is to ensure that our projects maximize food use, advance circular systems, contribute to little to no land conversion, and engage in diversity, equity, and inclusion-positive practices. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with diverse actors on this work, and if you are interested in getting in touch, please visit our Partnership Opportunities page or email [email protected].
