Assembly Approves Eustace 3-Bill Package Taking an Innovative Approach to Combating Hunger

Measures Seek to Put the Billions in Food that Go to Waste Each Year to Good Use

(TRENTON) – The full Assembly on Monday unanimously approved a three-bill package sponsored by Assemblyman Tim Eustace to combat hunger by making good use of the billions of dollars in food that goes to waste every year in the United States.

           The sponsor noted that each year, approximately 40 percent of the food supply in the U.S. goes uneaten due to losses at the farm, retail, and consumer levels.  This wasted food costs Americans $165 billion in retail sales and uses up valuable water and energy resources.  Meanwhile, 49 million Americans, including 16 million children, are at risk of going hungry.  In New Jersey, alone, 1.15 million people, including 375,000 children, are affected by food insecurity.
