GASP Event | Making the Connection: Food Waste & Our Environment 

Online

 

Consider this: About 40 percent of food grown and produced in the United States goes uneaten – that’s $165 billion worth of wasted dairy, meat, produce, and more. In fact, the average American family throws out about 25 percent of the food they buy each week.

All that waste takes an environmental toll. For one thing, that uneaten food is all too often relegated to local landfills where it rots, emitting potent greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide and methane. 

Experts say that we could cut out food waste by just 15 percent nationally, it would not only stave off these emissions but also save enough to feed 26 million people.

Join GASP from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. April 28 for a panel discussion with four Pittsburghers who are helping to lead the charge against food waste locally – Dylan Lew of Ecotone Renewables, Sara Swaney of 412 Food Rescue, Dan Dalton of Pasa Sustainable Agriculture, and Laura Totin Codori of Worm Return.

Learn more about the problem and how YOU can be part of the solution.
