Webinar: Wasted Food, Challenges and Opportunities in Partnerships and Consumer Behavior Change
- General Manager, Global Sustainability Solutions Services, Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives
- Associate Professor, Nutrition Program, Healthy Lifestyles Research Center, College of Health Solutions
Among the many growing challenges to food system sustainability, wasted food may be one of the greatest. Food losses from production to consumption decrease food availability for those who need it the most, stress waste management systems, and impact the environment in significant ways.
Dan O'Neill, Christopher Wharton from ASU and John Trujillo, Director Pubic Works for the City of Phoenix, will discuss the problems of wasted food, the issues embedded in consumer behaviors related to food consumption and loss, the potential for public-private collaboration to implement regional system solutions and the great potential in partnerships between universities and cities.
