Reduce & Recover: Save Food for People

Harvard Law School
Cambridge, MA

Reduce & Recover: Save Food for People will convene entrepreneurs, practitioners, policymakers, and enthusiasts to further a public dialogue on reaching the EPA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s national food waste reduction goal of 50% by 2030. The conference will focus on the top two priorities in EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy: “source reduction” and “feed hungry people.”  These initiatives to reduce food waste up front and make better use of our food to feed the hungry can make valuable contributions to Massachusetts goal of reducing disposal of food materials by 350,000 tons on an annual basis by 2020, while also helping to achieve important social and economic benefits from our food.  This conference will be an excellent opportunity to network and learn from local, regional, and national leaders on effective strategies to reduce wasted food and make better use of food to feed the hungry.
