Food Recovery: Fight Waste, Feed People
Tuesday, November 21 at 12:00 am (PT)
Regina Northhouse, Executive Director, Food Recovery Network
Prepare to be delighted and inspired. The Food Recovery Network is the largest student movement against hunger engaged in changing the norm from food waste to food recovery in America. They unite students on college campuses to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and actually donate it to people in need. Regina will educate us about how the FRN works, how much food they have recovered and how they continue to expand their reach and impact. We will also get to hear about The National Food Recovery Dialogue 2017 that was held earlier in the month with the purpose of engaging their diverse student network with policymakers, organizations and individuals making a change in the food waste realm. Their goal for this gathering was simple: to highlight the intersectionality of the food waste realm, learn about cutting-edge food justice initiatives taking place across the country and have lots of fun doing it. Join me to see if they achieved those goals! This show made possible due to the generous support of the Chapman Automotive Group.
