Annika Nielsen, Program Coordinator, Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC), and law students Irène Grialou and Amy Chyao
 
The Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic has spent over a year and a half coordinating the Farm Bill Law Enterprise (FBLE), a national partnership of law schools working toward a farm bill that reflects the long-term needs of our society. FBLE has conducted research and developed recommendations for the 2018 Farm Bill, and recently published in three reports: (1) Diversified Agricultural Economies; (2) Food Access, Nutrition, and Public Health; (3) Productivity and Risk Management. FLPC also released a report entitled “Opportunities to Reduce Food Waste in the 2018 Farm Bill,” which was not developed by FBLE.
