NRDC Tools Help Cities Cut Food Waste


U.S. cities’ efforts to cut food waste just got a boost in the form of an online tool kit released by the National Resources Defense Council and the Rockefeller Foundation.

The kit, dubbed The Food Matters Beginner’s Guide, contains a set of tools, templates, case studies, and guides aimed at helping cities achieve meaningful reductions in food waste.

It is designed to guide cities through the entire process, from public commitment and development of strategies to quantifying baselines of the amount of food waste being generated to engaging businesses, health inspectors, and food rescue organizations in the effort.

The materials in the kit are based partly on food waste reduction strategies used successfully in recent years by the cities of Baltimore, Denver, Nashville, and New York.
