Labels, Food Waste & Climate Change

Presenter: Minnie Ringland, ReFED Climate Fellow

Date: Thursday, June 29th

Time: 7:30 pm EDT (6:30 CDT, 5:30 MDT, 4:30 PDT)

What are the relationships between label date confusion, wasting good food, and methane emissions from landfills? In the U.S., a staggering estimated 38% of all food goes unsold or uneaten – the equivalent of 149 billion meals annually. It’s valued at $444 billion, roughly 2% of U.S. GDP, and it has the same climate footprint as the entire U.S. aviation industry (passenger, commercial, and military). Join PEC for a webinar with ReFED, a national nonprofit that leverages a holistic view of the food system to collaborate with key audiences and generate large-scale, meaningful impact.

Confusion over food labels can lead to food waste, increased organic waste in landfills, rotting food in landfills, and methane emissions. In addition to environmental concerns, perfectly good food could be going to feed hungry unsheltered people through our food pantries if label confusion could be addressed. Join us to learn what we can do about food waste in our communities, homes, and places or worship.
