Workshop: Path to Food Waste Reduction in Rhode Island
Food recovery to feed hungry Rhode Islanders, and minimizing and recycling food waste, are goals of the RI Food Policy Strategy, the RI Department of Health’s Rhode to End Hunger Initiative and the complementary RI Hospitality Association’s Taste the Waste initiative. EPA’s Excess Food Opportunities Map further highlights opportunities within the State to support these goals and help implement Rhode Island’s 2016 ban on food waste in the State’s landfill.
Join like-minded colleagues from not-for-profits, institutions, K-12 schools, businesses and all levels of government to strategize how to continue to make progress on these goals. The workshop will highlight success stories, share resources and finally create a working group to further promote progress under the leadership of a dedicated group of experts.
