This press release from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) highlights thirteen New England organizations that have backed the Food Recovery Challenge, an initiative that encourages businesses, organizations and institutions to prevent food waste by donating or recycling food. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) is among the organizations who have become “endorsers” of the Food Recovery Challenge. Endorsers help educate others about the environmental consequences of wasted food and help recruit new groups to join the 750 organizations already taking part in the challenge. “Massachusetts supports the goals of the Food Recovery Challenge,” notes MassDEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg. “We look forward to continuing to partner with EPA on this valuable work and to assisting Massachusetts businesses through our RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts program.”
