Food: Too Good to Waste (FTGTW) is an innovative community food waste prevention tool that uses simple strategies and tips to help individuals and families prevent wasted food at home. The toolkit, which was designed by the EPA-convened West Coast Climate & Materials Management Forum, was recently implemented in 18 communities across the U.S. by different local governments and community organizations. This webinar will present these community case studies and lessons learned during implementation.

West Coast Climate Forum Co-Lead Ashley Zanolli will provide brief background of the toolkit and its current status as a tool of EPA’s national Sustainable Food Management (SFM) program and Food Recovery Challenge. Viki Sonntag, the lead researcher for FTGTW, will present recent findings from an evaluation of the projects. Finally, representatives from three of the different projects will share stories about their experiences using the toolkit, approaches to soliciting community member involvement, and lessons learned that will inform future projects. Presenters will include Karen May from King County; Jennifer Jordan from Iowa City; and Dave Rocheleau (invited) from Rhode Island Food Policy Council.
