The Needham League is Co-sponsoring this program with Green Needham Collaborative this coming Thursday, October 22 at the Needham Library beginning at 7:30 pm.
At a time when many Americans suffer from hunger, up to 40% of food of the food in the U.S. goes uneaten — culled as imperfect and unsalable by producers, discarded by grocery stores, uneaten by restaurant & cafeteria customers, and thrown away in people’s homes. As daunting as the problem seems, there are solutions that offer multiple benefits. These solutions will be the subject of a presentation co-sponsored by Green Needham Collaborative and the Needham League of Women Voters. “Too Good to Waste: Creative Solutions for Reducing Food Waste” will be presented on Thursday, October 22, 7:30 p.m. at the Needham Library. Joshua Cook, Green Business Specialist for the Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection, and Greg Smith, the Superintendent of the Needham RTS, will speak about state and local actions to reduce food waste. Food waste reduction tips for households will also be provided.
