MEMBER OPPORTUNITY – FREE Webinar 1 CPEU: The (Re)Purpose of Food: Reducing Wasted Food at Home

The (Re)Purpose of Food: Reducing Wasted Food at Home

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 | 12pm ET/11am CT/9am PT

Home is where the waste is. Forty-three percent of food waste occurs at home. It stems from a variety of reasons: we didn’t make the recipe we planned, we ate out rather than cooked, or can’t think of a way to use it — or repurpose it. Regardless of why, the loss in dollars and impact on the environment add up. Registered dietitians encourage fruits and vegetable consumption, yet they are some of the most wasted food. From purchase to cooking, this session will provide ideas to reduce food waste that can be implemented at home, shared with the media, in retail, and with community clients to be part of the solution to this global concern.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Characterize the nature of food waste as it occurs on the consumer level at home.
  2. Advise clients/consumers on prioritizing food use at home.
  3. Develop 3 – 5 messages to help raise awareness on food waste and provide tips for preventing wasted food at home.
