Globally, one-third of all food produced is wasted. In the United States, this equates to 20 lbs of food thrown away per person every month with organic waste accounting for the second largest component in landfills. Not only is this amount of waste unacceptable in a world where large portions of our population are grappling with food insecurity, but food waste is also a major contributor to climate change. In fact, if food waste were its own country, it would be the third largest carbon emitter with only the United States and China contributing more to greenhouse gas emissions.
Come join us at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator on Wednesday May 24th, from 11-2 for a free event to learn how to tackle Food Waste! What changes can we make in our food production and supply systems to address this issue? Are there technologies and policies we can implement to make food waste a thing of the past? How are organizations and businesses currently dealing with this problem? What can your organization do to make a positive impact?
