Join us to learn first-hand from local community stakeholders about the toolkit developed as a direct result of a community pilot titled: ‘Food: Too Good to Waste‘. This toolkit can be customized and used by any interested local government or community group. By viewing this webinar you will hear and learn:

  • How the West Coast Climate and Materials Management Forum communities collaborated to develop this toolkit focusing on 5 key waste prevention behaviors to reduce wasteful household food habits
  • How development of this toolkit resulted in both cost savings and environmental benefits
  • At a retail value of $125 billion annually, Americans throw away about 25% of all food purchases
  • FACT: A family of four can save more than $1,600 a year by making small changes in how they shop, prepare and store food to prevent food waste
  • Food is among the single largest, yet the least recovered, waste streams in the U.S.
  • How to tailor this toolkit for use by any interested local government or community.
