Tackling Food Waste | October 27th, 7-8:15pm

According to the National Zero Waste Council, 63% of the food thrown out in Canadian households could have been eaten. This avoidable food waste is a growing problem - in our landfills, in our air quality and emissions, in our food systems, and in our wallets ($$$). In this session, we will explore how like-minded cities are creating a circular economy and eliminating food waste, London's food waste reduction efforts, and how you can make some simple changes in your life to eliminate your food waste!
