Expanding Federal Tax Benefits for Food Donations

Tax incentives induce food industry professionals to make behavioral and operational changes needed to donate rather than dispose of excess food (ReFED). About $620m in incentives to farms would generate 525m donated meals, while $130m directed towards restaurants and retailers would generate an additional 115m meals annually.
