Food Waste Reduction, Recovery and Composting on Your Campus

October 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

About 1/3 of all the food produced globally is wasted, consequently contributing about 6% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, there are a multitude of opportunities to reduce food waste; recover it to feed people and animals; and divert it from our landfills and incinerators. CURC’s extended webinar will follow the EPA’s food waste hierarchy to highlight ways campuses can reduce first, rescue where safe and then recycle into valuable compost material.
