Read about the Food Recovery Entrepreneurs Workshop, hosted June 27, 2016

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 convened 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 focused 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 highlighted innovative solutions from New England and across the nation to reduce wasted food and recover edible food for people.
