Originating Calendar International Week

1.3 billion tons of food are wasted throughout the world each year. Yet, hunger kills 26,000 people each day. When in the production/consumption process is this food being wasted? What are current methods that countries are doing to fix this problem? How can we contribute at a local level to address this issue?

Come hear Steve Sonka of the Institute for the Prevention of Post-Harvest Loss and community experts speak about this pressing issue. Enjoy a stimulating discussion and FREE refreshments from the Illini Union.
