Food: Too Good to Waste

Friday, July 24, 2020

Imagine buying 5 bags of groceries. On your way out of the store, you dump 2 of them directly in the trash. This is the reality for Americans, who waste roughly 40% of food produced for consumption. School cafeterias are no exception, but it doesn't have to be that way! This recorded webinar will outline the wasted food crisis, model methods for measuring wasted cafeteria food, and provide tangible solutions.

Join the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, your recycling nonprofit, for this webinar to discuss these issues. Brenna Toman is a Planning Analyst for the Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District.

NRRA launched a Summer Webinar Series instead of our annual conference in 2020, which we had to cancel due to the pandemic.  We still wanted to share the workshops that would have been available at the conference, so we created the Summer Webinar Series.  We charge a fee for attending the conference, and charging a modest fee for the Summer Webinar Series (live and recorded) allows us to cover NRRA's staff time, as well as recoup some of the lost revenue from our conference.

Fee and payment Information:

  • NRRA Member Pricing: $25
  • NRRA Not-yet-member pricing: $50
  • It is easiest and fastest to register online with a credit card. However, if you require NRRA to invoice you, please email info@nrrarecycles.org to receive a code to register.
