On December 6, State Representatives Lauren Carson, Terri-Denise Cortvriend, and Carol Hagan McEntee joined members of the Wasted Food Solutions and the Food Business and Economic Development Work Groups for a virtual meeting. Group members laid out RIFPC’s legislative priorities that are specifically related to small business support and food waste reduction, and learned about where each participating representatives’ priorities are aligned. The discussion also included conversation about potential areas of collaboration and support.
Rep. McEntee invited the group to present to the House Small Business Committee on Food Donation Tax Credit, and requested more information about the topics discussed. The group’s presentation date has not yet been set.
