From Farm to Table and Back Again: Innovations to feed more with less

From the fields to your refrigerator, inefficiencies and wasteful actions across our food system contribute to the loss of food that might otherwise help feed those who lack enough to eat. Congresswoman Chellie Pingree (D-ME), who ensured that provisions to reduce food waste were included in the 2018 Farm Bill, and Edward Spang, assistant professor of food science and technology and founding faculty member of the UC Davis Food Loss and Waste Collaborative, will discuss innovations to ensure that more food makes it from the farm to the home, and that what’s left over is reclaimed — to nourish future crops, fertilize gardens or even to generate energy.

Lecture: 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Reception: 6:30-7:00 p.m.
