About Our Work

New Perimeter supports the Global Foodbanking Network (GFN), an international nonprofit that works towards a hunger-free future in more than 40 countries by sustaining, uniting and strengthening food banks.  In 2007, New Perimeter supported the creation of GFN, and the firm has been assisting in various capacities since, including serving as outside counsel to the organization.  We support GFN’s and Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic’s Global Food Donation Policy Atlas, a collaborative project to chart the laws and policies affecting food donation in over a dozen countries as well as provide best practices and guidance on how laws and policies can be improved to both increase food donations and decrease food waste.
