Join the Harvard Food Law and Policy Clinic, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, and RecyclingWorks Massachusetts for an action-oriented conference.

This two-day event will convene entrepreneurs, practitioners, policymakers, and enthusiasts to further a public dialogue on reaching 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 tiers of EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy, which prioritizes actions people can take to reduce and recover wasted food: “source reduction” and “feed hungry people.” Speakers will highlight innovative solutions from New England and across the nation to reduce wasted food and recover edible food for people.
