The top tier of EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy is source reduction, which is reducing the volume of surplus food generated. Source reduction can be challenging to understand, quantify, and implement. Businesses and organizations can learn to effectively prevent wasted food by taking source reduction steps such as inventorying supplies, changing processes, and buying less. Looking through a sustainable materials management lens, preventing wasted food provides the greatest potential for cost savings and resource conservation relative to the other food recovery hierarchy activities, as demonstrated by the US EPA Waste Reduction Model (WARM). This webinar will introduce progressive examples from a state agency and the business community that prevent wasted food at the source.
