New law mandates proper labeling for kosher foods going to pantries
Kosher and halal meals going to food pantries must be tracked and labeled as such under a new federal law.
An amendment to the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act enacted last week mandates the tracking and labeling by the Department of Agriculture.
The department currently purchases kosher and halal foods but does not make a deliberate effort to label them as such, making it difficult to ensure that the meals end up in pantries and communities where they are most needed.
