"Feeding America applauds the passage today of food donation legislation by the House Ways and Means Committee. This legislation will help our food banks secure much-needed donations of nutritious food for those in need in communities nationwide. With more than 70 billion pounds of nutritious food wasted each year, this legislation could be groundbreaking in securing additional donations, and in helping the environment by reducing what is currently the largest single source of landfill waste. We look forward to working with Members of Congress to enact the bill and make the promise of the legislation a reality."
