Easton event to explore issue of food waste

October 24, 2017 by  

The United States has set a goal of reducing food waste by 50% by 2030, and an event has been planned for Easton that will seek to help make this happen.

The workshop, which will address concerns faced by the Lehigh Valley, will provide an in-depth exploration of how and why food wastage occurs in the area. It will be using actual data that has been collected about the topic, and will use various health, social, and environmental indicators to see where the problems lie and attempt to find solutions. It will also examine how these initiatives can be implemented and find possible strategies to do so.

The event will be geared towards those who work in government, as well as local organizations, community leaders, commercial and retail entities, and other stakeholders. The goal is for all of these sectors to work together to help prevent food waste in the Lehigh Valley area. Logo design and other printing services for an event like this can be provided by a local printing company.

Easton’s Pfenning Alumni Center will serve as the venue for this seminar, which will be held on November 2, and no fee will be charged to participate. It will run from 8:15 am until 4:30 pm, and additional information can be obtained on the Lehigh Valley Food Policy Council’s Facebook page.
