Eat It! 

Food Waste and What YOU Can Do About It!
 
Did you know that roughly half of the food produced in the United States is wasted? And over a third of edible food worldwide is tossed away as well? This means that litterally millions of pounds of food are going directly from farms to landfills, while millions of people remain severely malnourished.
 
You may be wondering: what are the causes of this monumental wastage? How does our food supply system allow for such inefficiencies? And who is doing something to change this?
 
The good news is that YOU can become a part of the solution!
 
Join:
 
Dana Frasz, Founder of Food Shift
Nancy Hahn,  Director of Operations at Food Runners
Tania Pulido, Project Manager at Urban Tilth and BYA Winner 2011
Maya Salsedo, Rooted in Community Youth Organizer, and BYA Winner 2012
 
for a discussion issue of food waste in our society.
 
You will not only get to be a part of the solution, you'll get to eat some of it as well! We will feature a delicious and unusual cooking demonstration by acclaimed chef Tim West, Founder / Chief Innovation Officer of LocalPopUPs

Earth Island Institute's New Leaders Initiative

 

The New Leaders Initiative (NLI) grows environmental leadership by raising the profile of young emerging environmental leaders in North America, celebrating their achievements, and providing them with the skills, resources, and relationships to lead effective campaigns and projects. NLI honors the legacy of David Brower - firebrand environmentalist, community activist, and founder of Earth Island Institute.



NLI is home to the Brower Youth Awards, the premier North American awards honoring bold young environmental leaders. Since 2000, the Brower Youth Awards has recognized 61 exceptional leaders with a cash prize, a high-energy week of activities in San Francisco, and ongoing leadership support. NLI also offers mentoring and project sponsorship to rising young leaders.
