Welcome Day 1 & Mainstage Session 1 - From Global to Local: Fighting Food Waste Around the World

Memorial Hall

Welcome to the Summit! We'll start with a special Land Acknowledgment and then introduce you to all that the next two days have to offer.


How can we create a sustainable future through food waste reduction on a global, national, and local stage? Food waste is a systemwide and far-reaching problem that extends beyond the U.S. Featuring three fireside chats – on international food loss and waste protocols; U.S. food waste-related policy and strategy; and the Pacific Coast Food Waste Commitment regional initiative – this session will outline the progress being made around the world, and what new opportunities exist for collaborative action.
