This October (7-9) I will be a panelist at the The Precarious Alliance: Strengthening Human Networks and Natural Systems Symposium at Delaware Valley College in Pennsylvania.
Marion Nestle will be the keynote speaker-I am also presenting a paper on food waste in NYC and urban environments.
Save the date- more details to come!
In the United States, between one quarter and one third of our food supply is wasted every year, and we spend over a billion dollars disposing of it. In 2008, the EPA reported that Americans generate roughly 97 billion pounds of food waste a year or 365 pounds per capita (with a population estimated at 300 million). Much of that food is edible.
