Every year, $408 billion is spent processing, transporting, storing, and disposing of food that never gets eaten. That’s millions of pounds of fresh food—24% of all food in the U.S.—going to waste, instead of nourishing the 42 million Americans expected to experience food insecurity in 2021.
Join WW International – who is leading cross-sector efforts related to food and nutrition access – and Food Tank, in a special virtual panel to discuss the new bipartisan legislation, introduced by US Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Pat Toomey (R-PA), designed to strengthen the 1996 Bill Emerson Good Samaritan Food Donation Act—and help fight senseless food waste and food insecurity.
Featuring: Danielle Nierenberg, President, Food Tank Mindy Grossman, CEO, WW International Tim Carman, Food Journalist, The Washington Post U.S. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern Emily Broad Leib, Director, Food Law and Policy Clinic, Harvard Law School Jenny Murphy, Director of Operations & Supply Chain Management, City Harvest Steven Jennings, Brand Lead, Health & Sustainability, Ahold Delhaize USA
