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.

Join us for an intergenerational discussion with:

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

We will also feature unusual cooking demonstration by acclaimed chef Tim West, Founder / Chief Innovation Officer of LocalPopUPs.
