On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, individuals from a variety of backgrounds met at the Quad Cities Food Hub to learn about and discuss food rescue. The workshop was hosted by the Food Rescue Partnership, a community-focused coalition committed to rescuing food throughout the Quad Cities that would otherwise be thrown away.
It was the inaugural event for the Food Rescue Partnership. Panel discussions and poster sessions taught food establishments how to get started, explained how to develop policies and procedures, shared ideas to motivate staff, informed leaders where to donate, and provided a food donation starter kit.
If you were unable to attend the workshop, but are interested in learning more about food rescue, please contact us! We would love to meet you and provide your business with a food donation resource starter kit.
