Sustainable Food Systems

Wednesday, Apr 19, 2017

According to the EPA food hierarchy, the highest and best use for food is human consumption and the least preferable option is landfill or incineration. What can we do to improve how food cycles through our city, keeping it at its highest and best use? What’s being done to develop regenerative, closed loop systems consisting of local resources?

This month's Forum is for everyone interested in food and organics issues cities face amidst a trend toward zero waste goals and sustainable materials management.
