Event description

Description

For this Food Tech Seattle Meetup we’ll be exploring innovative, actionable strategies for addressing food waste. Join us for some free food and drink, network with other food tech folks and listen to a conversation about real, actionable steps to reduce food waste.

Details:

In the U.S. 40% of our food goes to waste, much of it produce — at the same time, roughly 6 million U.S. households are food-insecure. At this meetup we want to go beyond just discussing the worrisome statistics; we'll talk with panelists who are helping design smart systems to mitigate food waste throughout the supply chain and explore how emerging tech can improve household, restaurant and workplace food efficiency. Finally, we'll discuss actionable strategies that consumers (and industries) can implement to affect real change.

Our panel will include:

- Tim Jenkins, Seattle Food Rescue

- Mark Freeman, Director, Microsoft Global Dining Services

- Catherine Lamb, The Spoon

- Tessa Levine-Sauerhoff, Artefact (moderator)


There will be sustainable snacks by Evergreens, rescued fruit from Imperfect Produce, and drinks by Artefact, so come hungry. We'll also be raffling off a Joule from Chefsteps!

Once again, thanks to our friend ChefSteps for making this meetup series possible, and thanks to Artefact for hosting!
