Food Recovery Project: New LL.M. Website and Publications

The United States is plagued by two food-related problems – high rates of hunger in its citizens and vast amounts of food waste. The Food Recovery Project, an initiative of the LL.M. Program in Agricultural & Food Law, seeks to help reduce hunger by recovering food that would otherwise be thrown away.

“Food recovery is an ideal strategy for simultaneously reducing waste and feeding the hungry,” said Nicole Civita, director of the Food Recovery Project. Nicole is a 2013 graduate of the LL.M. Program and now serves as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law, working with the LL.M. Program.  “Our project supports businesses who seek to enhance their sustainability and community outreach in a cost effective manner.”

Started in 2012, the project is funded by a grant from the Women’s Giving Circle.

The Food Recovery Project provides resources and legal information that encourage and support businesses in developing and implementing food recovery programs. Nicole authored the helpful publication, Food Recovery: A Legal Guide, that was just introduced last week and has been widely circulated to businesses and non-profits involved in food assistance.  The Guide is available on the Food Recovery Project website for free download.

James Haley was the first LL.M. candidate to be involved with the work.  In January 2013, he was appointed Research Fellow for the project, and it was James' solid research that helped laid the foundation for the Guide. James' legal analysis, A Legal Guide to The Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act is also available on the Food Recovery Project website and will soon be published in the University of Arkansas School of Law faculty publication, Law Notes.

“The Food Recovery Project will positively impact both the citizens and businesses of Arkansas and the surrounding region,” said Stacy Leeds, dean of the School of Law. “The project is another example of the leadership role our LL.M. program takes in agricultural and food law, and of the visionary philanthropy of the Women’s Giving Circle.”

For more information on the project, including its guide to food recovery, please visit the Food Recovery Project website.
