The Food Rescue Partnership hosted its second Food Rescue Workshop on October 4, 2018, at the Freight House in Davenport, IA.
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.
Thank you to all of the attendees for joining the FRP at the workshop and to our sponsors – Davenport Riverfront Improvement Commission, Iowa Waste Exchange, Iowa Waste Reduction Center, Quad City Bank & Trust, River Bend Foodbank, River Music Experience, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency – Region 7, and the Waste Commission of Scott County.
