Read the full story at Food Tank.

Illinois is helping lead the way in reducing food waste, demonstrating what can be achieved once different organizations from opposite ends of the food value chain collaborate. In 2016, the Wasted Food Solutions Task Force was created, bridging the silos between a variety of organizations involved in food recovery. Vanessa Reese, the Program Manager at Fresh Taste—one of the several organizations that co-convened the task force—tells Food Tank how the Wasted Food Solutions Task Force is developing a cohesive action plan to make Illinois a leader in reducing waste while also creating open source projects that can be replicated in other cities.
