Description

A staggering amount of food is wasted in the United States-estimated at 52 million tons a year. At every step of our food system--growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption, and disposal-waste is generated. Meanwhile, in our country, 13 percent of households (15.8 million households) were food insecure in 2015.

A more resilient food system involves collaboration between industry, food innovators, and all those along the food value chain. For food purchasers, particularly grocers, institutions, businesses, and households addressing inefficiencies in food handling, production, and consumption can help reduce food waste. A fundamental shift in our collective mindset is also required to address the disconnect between our nation's food system and the waste created.

Building Resiliency in Food Recovery will address the connections between wasted food reduction and food recovery. The webinar will explore building collaboration and support between diverse stakeholders, how to address similar (and dissimilar) challenges in urban and rural environments, and, fostering community empowerment to create and sustain local food systems.
