(Rochester, NY) – Earlier today, Green Party State Senate candidate, Brian White called for incumbent Senator Rich Funke to support The Food Recovery and Recycling Act (FRRA).

The initiative will send surplus food to those who need it, create compost, and help in the fight against climate change. "This is a no-brainer," said White.
