#ZeroHungerZeroWaste

Supporting Innovation for a World with Zero Hunger

Recording: Supporting Innovation for a World with Zero Hunger, Date TBA

Food waste is rampant in America. Each year, 35% of all food produced in the US is thrown away. Meanwhile, more than 42 million Americans struggle with hunger.
Startups are uniquely positioned to play a role in creating a world with zero hunger and zero waste in a post-pandemic world. With annual investment of $14 billion over the next ten years food waste can be reduced by 45 million tons each year.
In this panel, Village Capital and The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation will bring together a diverse group of innovators and funding leaders with lived experience and unique perspective to discuss the capital landscape for startups as well as the role that they play in creating a sustainable and inclusive food system.
