According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 30% of food is wasted globally across the entire supply chain. Wasted food alone accounts for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, more than the emissions of the aviation and shipping sectors combined. Why? Food waste ends up in landfills where it decomposes and produces vast quantities of methane, a potent greenhouse gas.

Join us and our panel of experts from Harvard, Food Recovery Network, and ReFED, the one-stop shopping location to get a clear view of the food waste problem, date labels, and other solutions. We will have plenty of actions for you to take on the Climate Action Now app to advocate for effective public policy.
