FLPC’s Senior Clinical Fellow Interviewed by The Connecticut Mirror on Recycling Food Waste

An April 11th, 2016 article published by The Connecticut Mirror features commentary from Ona Balkus, Senior Clinical Fellow for the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic. The article, “Recycling Food Waste: Slow as Molasses,” explores the challenges of creating a statewide food waste recycling program while the amount of food waste has drastically increased in recent years.

Excerpt from article:

“Harvard’s senior clinical fellow, Ona Balkus, said even with cities like San Francisco, Seattle and New York far into food waste recycling, including pickup, Connecticut actually is ahead of the game. Most states and cities are just starting to look at the issue and the Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture only last September announced a first-ever national food waste reduction goal – 50 percent by 2030.”
