Food Tank recently reported on the not-for-profit grocery store, The Daily Table, and their mission to reduce food waste while alleviating the problem of food insecurity. The Daily Table makes healthy foods affordable by selling products that are close to or past their display code dates at a discounted price point. The Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic has created a fact sheet and video that describe how these dates have no real indication of food safety. The Daily Table’s goal is to not only keep food out of landfills but to also give Dorchester residents access to affordable, healthy food.
