Austin is ready to take food waste prevention seriously. On September 18th Mayor Leffingwell, an EPA executive, as well as reps of the Austin Restaurant Association, Keep Austin Fed, Austin EcoNetwork and other groups will be signing a Project Charter that establishes source reduction and food recovery in the food service industry as important and cost-effective zero waste strategies.
The project focuses on emerging solutions for reducing loss in the food service industry which, when handled the right way can help hungry people, the environment, and the business bottom line. The event, which includes tacos, starts at 11:30 at the Long Center.
If you would like to request an invitation to the Charter Signing event then click the taco or visit the newly revived Food Shift Austin website.
