Washington's food waste prevention plan

Dec. 10, 2019 - May 29, 2020, 12 a.m.

As we're developing a food waste prevention plan for Washington, we invite you to submit your comments by May 29, 2020.

In 2019 the state Legislature passed the Food Waste Reduction Act, calling on Ecology to write a plan to cut Washington's food waste by 50% by 2030.

Food is a valuable resource which has social, environmental, and economic value. Edible and inedible food reaches landfills more than any other single material in everyday trash. With one in six Washingtonians being food insecure, it is important to prevent and reduce food waste in the first place.
