CUESA | Discussion: Kicking Food Waste to the Curb

This looks like a fantastic event. Ben Simon, founder and CEO of Imperfect, will share how his company rescues produce that’s too ugly for grocery stores and delivers it at an affordable price to Bay Area subscribers. Maisie Ganzler, the architect behind Bon Appétit Management Company’s sustainability and education initiatives, will describe how her nationally recognized foodservice company reduces waste at every level of their operations, from the farm (through their Imperfectly Delicious purchasing program) to food recovery. Dana Gunders, scientist for the Natural Resources Defense Council and author of The Waste Free Kitchen Handbook, will share fun and easy tips for reducing spoilage, reviving wilted produce, and putting a stop to food waste at home. The discussion will be followed by a reception with bites from the farmers market and fruit from Imperfect Produce. Dana Gunders’ book will also be available for purchase and signing (cash only). #foodpolicy
