What the Health: How Food Waste Impacts Public Health – and Vice Versa
How do public health initiatives on topics like food security, food safety, environmental health, and nutrition advance food waste reduction efforts? How do they hinder them? And how can we leverage limited resources to create synergistic messages that support both? Join us for a wide-ranging conversation on the intersections and points of distinction between efforts to improve public health and efforts to transform our food system.
