Globally, we waste over 1.4 billion tons of food annually. The US discards more food than any other country in the world – nearly 40 million tons every year. But there is good news. Food waste can be reduced easily through thoughtful planning by each of us.
Rachel VanWoert, Waste Reduction Coordinator with Marion County Environmental Services, will discuss reducing food waste in commercial and residential garbage, and ways we can help fight food waste at home, work, and in the community.
