Nearly 40% of all food in America goes to waste, and this number has doubled since the 1970’s. Growing food that goes uneaten creates vast economic, environmental, and social hardships. While wasted food happens across the entire food supply chain, the majority of it happens in the retail and consumer sectors. This webinar will help describe how we can turn the tide and dial back how much food we waste. Join us for the first in a two-part series to discuss this hot topic!
