The new Food Loss and Waste Action Plan is now available. This plan was created in collaboration with the KC Food Wise Advisory Committee and Mid-America Regional Council.
This plan provides a comprehensive set of solutions designed to reduce the amount of food that is wasted and sent to landfills in the Kansas City region. It takes a holistic “field to fork” approach, addressing food waste wherever it is created along the food supply chain utilizing the following key strategies:
- food waste prevention
- food rescue
- food recycling
The plan recognizes that everyone in the food system has an important role to play, and that what you do as an individual and what we do as a community will truly make a difference in reducing wasted food now and into the future.
While the goal of this plan is food waste reduction, it lays the groundwork for addressing a much broader range of issues that will help make a sustainable food system a vital part of Kansas City’s future.
