The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will host a virtual roundtable titled Exploring Food Waste Solutions: Success Stories from the U.S. and Beyond, to showcase innovative policies and approaches to reducing food waste in the United States, Europe, and the United Kingdom. The roundtable will feature public and private leaders in the food waste prevention sector followed by a Q&A session. Registration is free but required to attend this event.
The impact of food waste
In the United States, over one-third of all available food goes uneaten through loss or waste. When food is tossed aside, so too are opportunities for improved food security, economic growth, and environmental prosperity. USDA is uniquely positioned to help address the problem of food loss and waste through its programs, policies, and guidance.
