Event description

Description

Did you know that the average Canadian consumer throws out an estimated 170 kilograms of food a year? As a matter of fact, Canada is among the worst globally in wasting food. This issue is not only a matter of what is left at the back of the fridge, but also encompasses the entire food supply chain from the farm all the way through processing, distribution, foodservice and retail.

How did we get to this and how did we deal with food waste in the past? How can we individually make a difference? How can the food-supply chain reduce its footprint? The presenter is Magdaline Dontsos, a former faculty member in the Food and Nutrition Management program at Centennial College, as well as a member of the Ontario Society of Nutrition Management and the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management.

Food samples made from recovered food waste will be served.Waste Not - Want Not
