Please join us as a cosponsor of the Food Donation Act of 2017. The Act aims to clarify and enhance the coverage of the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act which promotes food donation by protecting food donors and food recovery organizations.
Specifically, the Act aligns liability protection with the current food recovery landscape, and directs the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to interpret and promote the Emerson Act. By making small changes to the Emerson Act, this legislation can support
big increases on the ground in terms of wholesome food donations.
