Middlesex County Food Dating Label Education Project (2022)

Food date labels report

This report analyzes the ways in which individual pantries throughout Middlesex County interact with food product date labels, food waste, staff and client education, and the impact that COVID-19 has had on those topics. This project has two main objectives: (1) understanding what practices food pantries in Middlesex County currently have in place regarding food waste and past date items, and (2) exploring ways in which to increase education around date labels and reduce food waste.
