EVENT: Waste Not, Want Not: a Deep Dive Into Food Waste


Waste Not, Want Not: a Deep Dive Into Food Waste

May 19, 2016   |   6-8 pm

Food Craft Institute   |  65 Webster Street •  Oakland, CA  •  94607

Around 40 % of all food produced in the United States ends up in the landfill and nearly 50 million people (1 in 6) in our country are hungry.  Often the food that ends up in the landfill is simply because of its “looks.” Wonky shaped fruits and vegetables never make it to the market.  Food Shift believes food is too good to waste.  If we recovered the one-third of the planet’s food being wasted we could feed two billion people!  Come learn more about the impacts of food waste and learn about what people, right here in the Bay Area, are doing about it!

Join Dana and two other industry experts in the discussion on May 19, 2016 at San Francisco’s Professional Food Society’s dinner and discussion event “Waste Not, Want Not: a Deep Dive Into Food Waste” hosted at Food Craft Institute.   Adam Pollack a SFPFS member will moderate the discussion with Dana Frasz, founder of Food Shift,  Ben Simon, CEO of Imperfect Produce and Ron Shigeta, CSO of Indiebio.  To register for the event and to learn more about each of the presenters click here (click on:  “Waste Not, Want Not: a Deep Dive Into Food Waste”)

Vegetarian box dinners will be served and provided by The Town Kitchen along with Beer and Cider from Temescal Brewing and Crooked City Cider.

Tickets: $30 for SFPFS members and $35 for non-members

We hope to see you there!
