Annually, nearly 41 million Americans face hunger while nearly 133 billion pounds of food are wasted. As a nation priding itself on being a world leader, the United States can do better. That’s why people across the country are building partnerships across sectors and starting their own ventures in an effort to feed people, not landfills. Young, motivated individuals are cutting red tape and making their voices heard locally and nationally. They’re committed to being a part of the solution and helping the United States achieve, if not exceed, its goal to cut food waste in half by the year 2030. The panelists in this session will discuss the current state of food waste and hunger in our nation, their inspiration behind their groundbreaking work, and their outlook on the future.
