Anyone in New York’s service industry is well-acquainted with the vast amounts of food waste coming out of kitchens and businesses on a daily basis. Though unless that business is big enough to be covered by the city’s organics diversion mandate, they may not know why or how to do anything about it yet. An upcoming city-organized event aims to give those businesses so much information that they’ll have no excuse but to start.
On July 25, the NYC Food Waste Fair will bring together professionals from the recycling industry and the food service industry for a “soup to nuts” display of what’s possible. Organized by the Foundation for New York’s Strongest and the Department of Sanitation (DSNY), the event will feature exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations about every major step of the food recovery process.
