Green candidate challenges incumbent to support NY’s Food Recovery and Recycling Act

(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 Act is included in Governor Cuomo’s budget proposal and is supported by the New York State Assembly. 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. “You cannot deny that income inequality has led to uncontrolled poverty in both the urban and rural parts of our district. While this doesn’t fix the systemic issues, it feeds hungry people. There isn’t an elected official who should not be behind this. If Senator Funke cannot step up and support this effort now, then once elected, I will.”
