Join the Food Policy Advisory Council for the Philadelphia Zero Waste Lunch and Learn to find out how your food scraps-generating organization can redistribute surplus food to food donation programs, comply with City and State waste regulations, and reduce operational costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Any organization that generates food scraps will benefit from this forum, including restaurants, caterers, grocery stores, retailers, schools, universities, and hospitals. Bring a brown bag lunch and enjoy the opportunity to network with successful and local zero waste practitioners.
This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited so please RSVP.
