Midwest Food Recovery Summit @ Des Moines Marriott Downtown
Sep 6 – Sep 8 all-day

Food waste is a problem.

Of all the food grown, processed and transported in the United States, we’re throwing away 40% of it. Over 33,000,000 tons of food end up in the landfill each year in our country and only 3% of food waste is recovered or recycled. It uses 10% of the total U.S. energy budget, 50% of our land and 80% of all consumed freshwater. And we throw all that away while 1 in 8 people are food insecure.

The Midwest Food Recovery Summit‘s purpose is to provide you with the education, insight and connections needed to help ensure food is used as it’s meant to be – as a resource. Focusing on all sources and all uses from source reduction and donation to feeding animals, industrial uses and compost.

Speakers from all over the country will showcase what’s working and what still needs work.
