How Business and Higher Learning Can Fight Hunger and Food Waste
Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)
One in eight Americans struggle with hunger daily, while 30-40% of food produced ends up in a landfill. Food Recovery Network, the largest student-movement fighting food waste and feeding people in the U.S., works to make food recovery the norm, not the exception. They’re scaling their model for businesses with their Food Recovery Verified Program, which recognizes businesses and conferences that donate surplus food to nonprofits in their community – with more than 150 verified businesses to date.
