Every year, Americans throw away $165 billion worth of food.  World-wide, 1/3 of all food is lost or wasted.  We use 25% of our potable water to grow food that is ultimately lost or wasted.  This occurs while 1 in 6 Americans is food insecure.

This U.S. EPA-hosted webinar will show K-12 schools how to improve their bottom line, feed hungry people, and reduce wasted food by learning from schools engaged in surplus food donation from school cafeterias.  Also, the USDA will clarify its food donation policy and the legal implications of surplus food donation.
