Professor Civita on Legal Issues and Food Recovery


The LL.M. Program continues its valuable and high-profile work to reduce waste, encourage food recovery, and reduce hunger.

Professor Nicole Civita, Visiting Assistant Professor in the LL.M Program and Director of the Food Recovery Project, participated in the inaugural Food Waste & Hunger Summit on April 5 & 6 at Northwestern University.  Professor Civita is author of the popular publication, Food Recovery: A Legal Guide.

Professor Civita presented an hour-long plenary address on the legal aspects of food recovery and fielded many excellent questions about liability protection, preemption, tax incentives, and state-by-state nuances related to regulation of donated food.

The uniformly positive feedback on this session once again demonstrated the value of educating anti-hunger activists and food recovery advocates about the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act.

Below is access to Professor Civita’s interactive presentation slides.

The Food Recovery Project is an initiative funded by two generous gifts from the Women's Giving Circle at the University of Arkansas.  Last year, the Women's Giving Circle funded the drafting of Food Recovery: A Legal Guide and its companion article for lawyers, The Legal Guide to the Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act  by James Haley (2013 Ark. L. Notes 1448).  This year, they are funding continued work in this area, including the Food Recovery Project blog.
