Federal agencies try
to combat food waste
A challenge has been issued in the United States, to gather hundreds of companies, government agencies, schools and other organizations to reduce food waste. The U.S. Agriculture Department and Environmental Protection Agency have developed the U.S. Food Waste Challenge, which aims to reduce, recover and recycle food waste.
Examples include researching new composting techniques, as well as increasing the amount of wholesome food that can be donated instead of discarded.
