2018 Food Rescue Workshop

The Food Rescue Partnership hosted its second Food Rescue Workshop on October 4, 2018, at the Freight House in Davenport, IA. The keynote presentation at the workshop was led by the head chef from Baked Beer and Bread Co.

The Workshop covered food waste problems and efforts at a local and regional level, along with a panel discussion highlighting food rescue successes from The Adler Theater/River Center, Panera Bread of Iowa, and Augustana College.  The keynote speaker from Baked Beer & Bread Co. discussed strategies to monitor food purchasing and controlling waste by utilizing food to maximum use, as well as through donation to local non-profit organizations, all while sharing how to engage and motivate staff in food rescue efforts.  All attendees received a food rescue resource kit which included the FRP’s Resource Guide on Food Rescue, a food waste tracking log, as well as materials provided by the sponsors.
