Finding Solutions to Food Waste

This panel brings to light the pervasive problem and indelible impact of food waste on the global economy, the environment, and our society. Approximately one-third of the food produced is discarded, yet change is possible. Panellists offer creative solutions to combat food waste. Moderated by Suvi Järvelä-Hagström, Cultural Counselor and Head of Cultural Affairs, Embassy of Finland to the United States, the panel includes the Head Chef and Co-Founder of a zero-waste restaurant (Restaurant Nolla in Helsinki), the Head of Partnerships of a mobile application that connects consumers to unsold food (Too Good to Go, founded in Denmark and serving major European cities), and a Seattle-based writer on food and sustainability.
