To address challenges presented by food waste, the food industry came together to form the Food Waste Reduction Alliance (FWRA). Led by GMA, the Food Marketing Institute, and the National Restaurant Association and co-chaired by ConAgra Foods, Wegman's Supermarkets and Sodexo's QSCC, the effort is unique in its depth and breadth. The project has two overall goals: increase food to donation and decrease food waste sent to landfills. Leadership of the project draws on representatives from the manufacturing, retail, restaurant and food service industries, as well as knowledge partners from the anti-hunger community and waste management experts. The Alliance works to identify emerging solutions and new technologies to increase donation and decrease waste to landfill, as well as share best practices across industries.
The following organizations are actively engaged in the FWRA. Learn more about the work of the Food Waste Reduction Alliance at www.foodwastealliance.org.
