This is a free
webinar from the Environmental Protection Agency.
School food invokes
memories of cafeteria lines, pizza and cartons of milk. What most of us
didn’t pay attention to or remember was the amount of wasted food (food that
could be eaten by someone else if recovered) and food waste (food that is inedible
or has been partially consumed and could be composted) created in school
In this webinar,
attendees will hear from three leaders in the industry on how to more
effectively manage the entire food process affecting school cafeterias.
First, you will hear about methods to teach children about the impacts of food
waste and wasted food. Then, moving directly into the cafeteria, you will
learn about practices to evaluate the amount of food waste and wasted
food. Finally, you will learn about a new initiative to collect the
wasted food and redistribute it into the community for people to eat.
