2022 Food Waste Solutions Summit

May 10-12, 2022 | Minneapolis, MN





Thank you for making the 2022 Food Waste Solutions Summit possible!

Presented by ReFED, the first Food Waste Solutions Summit in more than two years took place May 10-12 in Minneapolis, with more than 640 people joining either in-person or virtually.

The connection at the conference was felt in full, but in the midst of this camaraderie, serious work was getting done, and a few themes emerged throughout the course of the event – the importance of recognizing widespread efforts already underway from an expanding number of organizations across the food system; the true power of engaged stakeholders; and the uncompromisable need for a truly diverse, equitable, inclusive, and just circular food movement.
