Congress tackles food waste, helps restaurants with food donations

The Food Donation Improvement Act specifically expands liability protections to include donations of an apparently fit grocery product or apparently wholesome food that is “donated directly to a needy individual by a retail grocer, wholesaler, agricultural producer, restaurant, caterer, school food authority, or institution of higher education for which the recipient is charged a good Samaritan reduced price that is no greater than the cost of handling, administering, and distributing the food or product.”
