It’s time for the next event in our monthly food tech meetup series! We’ll be exploring a subject that affects every one of us on a daily basis: food waste. Join us on Wednesday, June 27th at sustainable design firm Artefact for drinks, snacks, and some rousing discussion. (Bonus: it’s free to attend, thanks to our sponsor ChefSteps!)
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.
The panel will include:
- Mark Freeman, Microsoft Foodservice
- Tim Jenkins, Seattle Food Rescue
- Veronica Fincher, Seattle Public Utilities Waste Reduction Program
- Catherine Lamb, The Spoon
- Tessa Levine-Sauerhoff, Artefact (moderator)
Come ready to discuss creative ways to mitigate food waste with the Seattle food tech community — and bring a few business cards while you’re at it. Register here to reserve your spot!
