Food waste is an issue in America – more than a third of the food we produce goes into the trash while 1 in 8 Americans are food insecure. Our K-12 schools are in a prime position to help tackle this problem through education in the classroom and action in the lunchroom.​

​Join K-State’s Pollution Prevention Institute and our panel of speakers on Feb. 23, 2023, as we explore school food waste.

By the end of this free webinar, you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding on the significance of food waste.
  • Hear from three Kansas schools about their waste journey.
  • Learn about the tools you can use to prevent and divert food waste from landfills.
  • Have an opportunity to ask questions in a concluding Q&A session.
