Food Justice and Security 2:00 -3:00 P.M. ZOOM
Our food system is rapidly deteriorating the planet, and in its current form, we will not be able to feed the over 9 billion people inhabiting Earth by 2050. Our growing population is pushing food security to the edge, and what we’re eating is pushing the planet to the breaking point on climate change and deforestation. How can you help? Come hear two speakers share their work to ensure healthy food is readily available for all of our neighbors for decades to come.
Terri Goldberg is the Executive Director of the Northeast Waste Management Officials Association (NEWMOA) and leads their regional initiatives on reducing wasted food and combating climate change.
Julie Kremer co-founded Food Link in 2012 by rescuing unsold fresh food. Confronted with the reality of good food going to waste, she recognized the synergy of delivering food to community organizations that feed those in need. In 2019, Food Link diverted more than 3 million pounds of food from the waste stream.
