Draft Meeting Agenda
We are pleased to announce the second Zero Food Waste Forum to be held October 16, 2018 in Berkeley, California, hosted by the Northern California Recycling Association and the Solid Waste Association of North America Gold Rush Chapter.
Check out the Program and apply to attend today!
Attendance is limited and priority will be given to local jurisdiction staff.
NCRA & SWANA members: $65/person; Non-Members: $75/person
The purpose of the Forum is to help local jurisdictions understand the direction and intentions of Senate Bill 1383 (2016), which requires that no less than 20 percent of edible food currently disposed of in California is recovered for human consumption by 2025, and where we need to go. The Forum will profile successful policies and programs in food waste prevention and reduction and edible food repurposing and recovery, highlight regional and statewide examples and provide a forum for innovative approaches to reduce wasted food and feed hungry people. There will be time for break-out sessions in which to delve more deeply into these subjects with presenters and colleagues.
Sunday, September 16, 11am – 3pm, at East Bay Regional Parks’ Lake Temescal Streamside Picnic Area, 6502 Broadway Terrace, Oakland, CA. Directions
Join us for a day of BBQ, lawn games, networking, frisbee and more! Family, kids, friends and dogs welcome!
The event is free to members – NCRA will provide all food and drink! Non-members are encouraged to chip in $5; no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
RSVP by 9/10/18.
