Waste Not, Want Not

Did you realize that in the US, we throw away 40% of our food supply every year? At the same time, 1 in 8 Americans struggle to put food on our tables. What is the disconnect here?

Join Massimo Bottura and Raj Patel to learn more about the causes and impact of food waste. We’ll talk about the underlying societal issues that aggravate waste. We’ll see inspiring examples of innovative change that highlight the dignity of food and possibilities of food rescue. And we’ll walk away with tangible actions that we can take to make an impact.

This summit is not only a talk from leading voices. It’s also an engaging and interactive conversation with practical take-aways and delicious tastings. It’s Food for Change.

The entrance to this summit is on the corner of 14th St and Larimer St, next to Edible Beats Street and across from the Taste Marketplace (#11 on the festival map). Go to the 2nd floor of the College of Architecture and Planning (UCD). When you arrive, enjoy the interactive stations and meet the producers. The panel discussion will begin after about 45 minutes.
