SFPA is aligned with the broad goals outlined in the strategy: preventing the loss and waste of food and increasing recycling of food and other organic materials. Further, achieving these aims will lead to other climate and community benefits such as the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and economic savings.
