Food Waste Workshop
October 20, 2022 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Approximately one third (or 1.3 billion tons) of the world food supply is lost or wasted—enough to feed 2 billion people each year. Workshop participants will look at the issue of food waste on a global, national, and local scale, applying both a social and environmental lens. Rylee McCone, Waste Diversion Specialist with the Auraria Sustainable Campus Program, will lead a discussion on the factors contributing to food waste, the EPA’s food recovery hierarchy, and local organizations and efforts working to address the issue.
