We are a community of volunteers working together to reduce food waste in Western North Carolina
Why Does Food Waste Matter?
In the United States, an estimated 30 to 40 percent of available food is wasted. With the seeming abundance of food all around us, it’s hard to imagine the impact that food waste has to our community. Reducing food waste could not only help to feed thousands of hungry people but it could also minimize the impact to climate change, reduce what ends up at our landfills and increase food security.
2023 Food Waste Solutions Summit
The inaugural Food Waste Solutions Summit is a “come one, come all” invitation to anyone interested in the problem of food waste in WNC. From individuals and food-focused community organizations, to municipalities, businesses, and educational institutions, the Summit asks participants to identify their place in our community and how we can manage food waste together.
