Lorraine Graves: Food Is Too Good to Waste
January 4, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Lorraine Graves will outline the big picture regarding food production and consumption and the millions of tons that get wasted. She will discuss ways that each of us can tackle the issue, cutting down on our own wastage, and how to make sure that more food reaches those who need it.
Lorraine, whose husband Bill is the current president of the society, is a long-time member, whose children are graduates of our education program. Through her work with the EPA, she has been involved with the Food Recovery Challenge, a national effort under the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management Program challenging businesses to reduce the amount of food sent to landfills, and WasteWise, a program that converts food waste into compost, resulting in a reduction in greenhouse gases.
