An estimated $165 billion worth of food is thrown out in America every year. With careful food-waste prevention planning and thoughtful partnerships with meeting venues and food donation organizations, your conference meals don’t have to end up rotting in the landfill. Join us for a discussion of the strategies and tactics you can use to implement a low-waste F&B program.

In this half-hour webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to set up a food-recovery plan with your hotel or venue
  • Critical issues to discuss with your food donation partner
  • How Good Samaritan laws limit your liability
  • Ways to get buy-in from hotels, attendees, and your organization
