We can reduce food loss and waste throughout the food system, and significant reductions can happen at institutions, such as schools. Students and schools can find opportunities and participate in actions that reduce waste and ensure nutritious food ends up feeding people, not landfills – by taking a closer look at what’s being thrown away at their location.

In April 2017, EPA, USDA, and the University of Arkansas finalized the Guide to Conducting Student Food Waste Audits: A Resource for Schools. The guide presents information for students, and those who work in schools, on the value of conducting an audit, how to perform the audit itself, and what to do with the data collected. It also includes a number of food waste prevention ideas.

This webinar will introduce participants to the guide, and share examples from schools that have used to the guide to meet their waste reduction goals.
