NRDC’s Food Matters initiative partners with cities to achieve significant food waste reductions within five years through a comprehensive set of policies and programs. Its tools and methodologies are being used by more than a dozen U.S. municipalities, and it helps cities in overcoming critical barriers to addressing food waste. The deep technical expertise provided by Food Matters helps translate the analysis it provides into high-impact, cost-effective projects and policies. NRDC will convene a regional working group to provide cities with the opportunity to strategize with their peers and NRDC experts, set ambitious goals, and implement local initiatives.
