The amount of food wasted in the United States is staggering.  In the U.S. more food ends up in landfills and incinerators than any other material – even more than paper and plastic.  This is especially true for the hospitality sector, where a considerable portion of the budget goes towards buying food – and then disposing of the unused food as waste.  In this webinar, participants will learn how food waste has significant economic as well as environmental consequences, and ways that it can be diverted from the traditional disposal methods and recovered for donation, recycling and composting.
