Join us in St.Louis, MO, this May for three days of innovation, insights, and action at the 2023 Food Waste Solutions Summit!

Presented by ReFED, the Food Waste Solutions Summit is the premier food waste event of the year — bringing together food businesses, funders, solution providers, innovators, policymakers, nonprofits, and more to drive the adoption of food waste solutions.

Food waste is a problem that can be solved, and that’s what the Food Waste Solutions Summit is all about. Featuring two full days of programming — panels, working sessions, field trips, networking events, innovator demos, and more — this is our chance to align efforts and get motivated for the work ahead.

Because there's no time – or food – to waste!
