Food Waste Reduction Briefing (Co-Sponsored Webinar)

May 14, 2024 @ 12:00 pm 1:30 pm EDT

Food Waste Reduction: Philanthropy for People and the Planet

SAFSF is co-sponsoring this webinar aside other organizations, hosted by Community Food Funders.

Up to 40% of food in the United States is wasted along with all of the resources used to produce, distribute, and prepare it. Furthermore, food production and food waste disposal generate significant greenhouse gas emissions at every stage of the food supply chain. Meanwhile, millions of people struggle with food insecurity while good food goes to waste.

Food waste reduction offers philanthropy an opportunity to address many of our world’s existential challenges, including combating the climate crisis and biodiversity loss, improving environmental health protections, and fighting racial injustice. It is at the intersection of many other issues including food access, local food systems, and many more. Addressing food waste is a unique issue requiring both individual and systemic actions. Each of us has a role to play in solving food waste and now is the time to act.

Join us for a deep dive into the problem of food waste, where funding has been going, how local and national organizations are establishing innovative partnerships to address food waste, and why and where funders should get involved.
