Get ready to love your leftovers and compost like crazy! DC Food Recovery Week–the region’s annual push to reduce the astounding 40 percent of food that’s wasted in the United States–is almost here!
From Oct. 13 to 20, events across the region will spotlight, celebrate and advocate all the ways we can reduce waste and feed more people.
Those looking for a fun, thought-provoking outing might go on a restaurant walking tour, hit a film screening or attend a happy hour. People looking to reduce food waste in their households can take a variety of classes on cooking, composting and preserving. Looking for ways to reduce waste and help feed those in need at your faith community? Check out the presentation titled Food(Waste) & Faith. Most events are free, but require registration.
Put on by the DC Food Recovery Working Group, the week’s full schedule is available here. The DCFRWG is also excited to announce that a parallel Community Food Rescue Week, put on by Manna Food Center, will be taking place in Montgomery County; that schedule can be found here.
