Investing for Impact: How Philanthropy is (and isn’t) Funding Solutions to Food Waste
Breakout Session (Running Concurrently)
Funding food waste reduction is crucial to meeting 2030 goals — and philanthropic capital can have a big role to play. As a result, the ReFED Capital Tracker was launched in 2022, and updated to include philanthropic data — bringing transparency and insight to the ecosystem on where funding is going and where the gaps lie. Join this panel discussion to explore the Capital Tracker tool, high level trends, and the role of philanthropists in providing flexible, risk-tolerant, and patient investment to support impact-focused solution providers.
