Food Loss and Waste - Taking Action (community call/webinar)

Thursday, November 30, 2017
10:00 am | Eastern Standard Time (New York, GMT-05:00) | 1 hr

One of the things that the Ag2Nut Community of Practice is working on is the increasing availability of nutritious food for all. Food loss and waste is a major drain on the availability of nutritious food, worldwide - particularly because it affects perishable, nutrient-dense foods the most. Curbing food loss and waste is a necessary part of improved agriculture and nutrition linkages.

Join a conversation on this important topic with: 
• Dr. Selena Ahmed, Montana State University Food and Health Lab, will describe some of her research on this topic, involving students to study and reduce food loss and waste.
• Lauren Yokèd, of Leket Israel, an organization that rescues healthy food for Israel’s needy. Lauren will share about how food rescue works, and how it can solve two problems at once: reducing food loss, and getting healthy food to nutritionally vulnerable populations.
• Danielle Nierenberg, President of Food Tank, will reflect on the issue based on this fall’s Food Tank Summit which focused on food loss and waste. FoodTank has done much to raise awareness of this issue.

Please join the webinar, learn and share your experience and questions on what can be done to reduce food loss and waste worldwide.

After your request has been approved, you'll receive instructions for joining the meeting.
