Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Web Academy Webinar: Technology Innovation – Reducing Food Going to Waste

Thursday, December 14, 2017, noon – 1:30 pm CT

Technology is changing the way we live, work and communicate, and it is also affecting food loss and waste. As we strive toward the national goal to reduce food loss and waste by 50 percent by the year 2030, this webinar will have three EPA Food Recovery Challenge Endorsers showcase their technology solutions.
