Mainstage 1 | The Road to Scale: Accelerating Action for Lasting Impact

Mainstage Session

Food waste is a solvable problem, and dozens of high-impact solutions already exist. So what will it take for the food system to finally start adopting them at scale? Our opening session will dig into the answer from a few different angles. We’ll hear an opening keynote from ReFED’s Dana Gunders and be welcomed to the Summit by a White House representative. Then we’ll hear from a series of innovators about how they were able to get their solutions to “break through” with end users. And we’ll close with a keynote by a special guest. As Dana famously said in her opening remarks at last year’s Summit, the time for pilots is over – we know what works, so let’s start doing it.
